A woman is dead after a police chase and fatal crash on the Western Freeway this afternoon.

Police attempted to intercept an allegedly stolen van about 2.30pm, but the car failed to stop and collided with a truck near Ballan-Daylesford Road.

A female passenger from the allegedly stolen vehicle died at the scene, with the driver fleeing on foot.

A 17-year-old male was arrested a short time later.

It’s alleged the pursuit took place after a home invasion.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are on scene and the Western Freeway Ballarat-bound is expected to be blocked for a number of hours.
