Police arrested an 18-year-old man after a vehicle was seen allegedly driving erratically in Tarneit on Tuesday (18 August).

One witness who was walking in the area said that the car came around the corner with a burst tyre going about double the speed limit.

He said that he quickly grabbed his pregnant wife and ran into a nearby residents garage to avoid being hurt.

He also saw a lady with a pram who was lucky to dodge the car.
