A 33-year-old Dunedin psychology student appeared in court yesterday in relation to a wild car ride which left a trail of destruction in Mornington.

Police were called to Mornington Rd about 4.30pm, when a dark-coloured Mercedes Benz crashed into two vehicles.

The car then continued driving and struck another vehicle on Maori Rd about 4.40pm.

The driver of the Mercedes fled the scene on foot, and was chased by members of the public, who caught her.


Police arrested the driver and processed her for driving with excess breath alcohol.

Nobody was injured.
