Police hunt 100mph chase driver

Police are hunting a motorist who drove at speeds of up to 100mph around residential streets in Callander before escaping arrest.

The male suspect drove from Mollands Road into the town before continuing into Main Street and Stirling Road towards Doune.

Police said the man drove at speeds estimated at 80 to 100mph in the 30mph zones.

The incident happened at about 16:00 on Tuesday.

Police pursued the burgundy car before unsuccessfully attempting to stop it.

Sgt Adrian Robertson said: "There were numerous children in the area at the time of this incident along with a high flow of traffic.

"It is unacceptable that this driver thought to drive in this manner and we are eager to trace him as soon as possible and hold him to account.

"We are keen to speak anyone who was in the Main Street area at the time, particularly those who may have recorded dashcam footage of the incident."
