ORIGINAL: EMERGENCY services crews are currently at the scene of a traffic crash near Park Beach Plaza shopping centre.

This followed a police investigation where detectives became suspicious about a vehicle outside shops at Moonee.

Coffs Harbour Police crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said a 19-year-old man ran from police at Moonee and was apprehended by detectives.

He said the vehicle then drove south on the Pacific Hwy and crossed onto the wrong side of the highway a number of times.

Det Insp Jameson said there was no police pursuit.

He said the car crashed into another vehicle, with a pregnant woman inside, at the roundabout on Arthur St in Coffs Harbour.


A 27-year-old man was later apprehended at the Park Beach Plaza.

Det Insp Jameson said the two men were currently in custody at the Coffs Harbour Police Station and assisting the Target Action Group with inquiries.
