Two people have been charged after a police pursuit in Cessnock overnight.
Officers from the Hunter Valley Police District attempted to stop a Subaru Forester which allegedly sped away from them.
A pursuit was initiated which saw the Forester reach speeds up to 110 kmp/h, before it lost control and crashed into a tree on Lomas Lane at Nulkaba.
The 38-year-old male and 21-year-old female passengers fled into nearby bushland before being tracked 2km through the heavy bushland.
During a search of the vehicle police seized a balaclava and two mobile phones.
The woman was also charged with five outstanding arrest warrants and refused bail to appear at Cessnock local court today, while the man was given conditional bail to appear before court in July.
