A bloodied mother allegedly high on drugs has been arrested for reportedly ramming police vehicles during a high-speed chase.
The woman allegedly swapped seats with her teenage son during the pursuit in Melbourne’s west on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old woman, whose face was covered in blood, was handcuffed on the side of the road after the chase came to a halt.
Police said a blue Nissan Navara with stolen licence plates was seen driving an hour before the chase ended.
It is alleged the woman’s 15-year-old son was driving the car when police first spotted it.
A chase ensued after the vehicle allegedly fled, and moments later it was seen with the 36-year-old woman behind the wheel.
Stop sticks deflated the car’s two right tyres, but the chase continued.
The Nissan then allegedly rammed two police cars before driving onto the busy Princes Freeway.
Police continued to chase the Nissan, which was carrying the woman, her son and his 14-year-old friend.
The vehicle eventually pulled over in a service lane and all three people in the car were arrested.
The woman allegedly tested positive to ice and cannabis.
Sergeant Adam Wojcik said the woman’s actions were ‘dangerous and reckless’.
‘She (was) driving while she was affected by drugs, that’s even more ridiculous than anyone can imagine,’ Sergeant Wojcik told Nine News.
Charges are yet to be laid.
