NT Police have said a 15-year-old girl was expected to be summonsed for aggravated unlawful use of a motor vehicle following a crash in a stolen car in Marrara overnight during a police chase, while five other girls in the car, aged between 10 and 15-years old, will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Bland said a statement, that about 2am on Monday, police saw the car moving erratically along Lee Point Rd and started chasing it. However after less than 30 seconds, it failed to turn and crashed at the intersection of Lee Point Rd and McMillians Rd, he said.

Det Snr Sgt Bland said the car was stolen and six female girls inside the car were taken to Royal Darwin Hospital for assessment and have since been discharged.

He said one 15-year-old girl was expected to be summonsed at a later date for aggravated unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

While the remaining five girls, aged between 10-and-15-years old, will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act, he said.

“It’s incredibly lucky no one was seriously injured or killed,” he said.

Det Snr Sgt Bland did not say if there would be an investigation about any impact of the police chase on the crash.
