Two dead after police interception turns fatal: Bell Street closed
Police are struggling to identify two men who were killed following a horror police pursuit in Preston last night.
It’s believed a Toyota Kluger had been involved in a carjacking and an aggravated burglary in St Albans when a pursuit was sparked just after 10pm.
The four-wheel-drive crashed into a truck, killing the two men in the car at the scene.
The truck then hit a stationary Audi sedan.
A man in his 30s suffered chest injuries and was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a stable condition. Another man was taken to The Austin in a stable condition.
Another two men were arrested but have refused to speak. A fifth man remains on the run.
Police are also trying to track down a stolen black VW Golf and the victim of the attempted carjacking.
