Three teenagers have been involved in a police pursuit in the early hours of this morning.
Police say they saw a suspicious vehicle in the Hamilton suburb of Bader shortly after 3am.
They say the driver didn't stop for police and there was a short pursuit until the car hit road spikes a few minutes later on Peachgrove Road.
Senior Sergeant Tina Shaw says two boys aged 14 and 15, and a 14 year old girl fled the car but were caught shortly afterwards.
The three will appear in the Hamilton youth court this week.
Last week three teenagers died after a police pursuit ended with their car crashing and bursting into flames.
