Two teenagers are set to front court after crashing an allegedly stolen car at Lambton early Wednesday morning.

Patrolling police came across the crash on Durham Road at about 4.30am.

They found a white Mitsubishi Triton had crashed into a power pole – the vehicle had earlier been reported stolen from Jesmond.

A boy and girl inside the vehicle, both aged 15, were not hurt – another person in the car fled and is still on the run.

The pair were arrested and are assisting police with their inquiries.
