An investigation is underway after a woman was seriously injured in a crash at Dubbo overnight.

Officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District attempted to stop a Ford Falcon sedan on Cobbora Road for the purposes of a random breath test about 12.30am (Saturday 22 May 2021).

When the vehicle allegedly failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated by local police and officers from the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command. It was then terminated due to the nature of driving.

Several minutes later, police found the vehicle crashed into a power pole and fence on Fitzroy Street, North Dubbo.

The driver had left the scene; however, a 49-year-old woman found in the front passenger seat had suffered serious injuries and was taken to Dubbo Base Hospital.

Officers attached to the Crash Investigation Unit are en route to the scene from Sydney.

Inquiries are continuing into the identity of the driver.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report information via NSW Police social media pages.
