Speedy drive through Brock ends in slew of charges

Peterborough, ON, Canada / (CHEXTV)

An 18-year-old man from Oshawa is facing charges after a particularly speedy drive through Brock Township last night.

Durham Regional Police says an officer spotted a car, with the teen allegedly at the wheel, travelling at 176 kilometres an hour in an 80-kilometre zone.

Police say the driver and two passengers abandoned the car and fled on foot for about 1.5 kilometres before eventually being tracked down by officers and the K-9 unit.

Joseph Conroy is charged with dangerous driving, flight from police and racing a motor vehicle.
