A PURSUIT that led to a Kotara South crash has sparked a police appeal for information.
Police are calling for dash-cam footage after they attempted to stop a white Hyundai i40 on Stewart Avenue in Newcastle West.
The vehicle failed to stop and accelerated at high speed onto Parry Street, police said.
A pursuit began but was abandoned after the driver allegedly travelled onto the wrong side of the road at Tudor Street.
Police said the same vehicle was involved in a collision with three other cars about 10 minutes later at the intersection of Carnley Avenue and Lookout Road.
"Two persons fled the vehicle and when police arrived one female was detained," police said.
Anyone who witnessed the crash and is yet to speak to police is urged to call Newcastle police station on 4929 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Police are also interested in any footage depicting the car, the occupants or the collision itself.
Separately, an 18-year-old Jesmond man will face court on Thursday after alleged break-and-enter offences in August and September.
Police arrested the man on September 5, charging him with seven offences after a Wallsend police pursuit.

He was refused bail to face Newcastle Local Court on Thursday.
