A Police chase through Perth's northern suburbs has ended with the vehicle being split in two after crashing into a pole.
According to early reports, a BMW was being pursued by unmarked police cars when it hit a pole on Beach Rd in malaga and split in half at around 12:15pm on Thursday.
One half of the car struck another vehicle causing a second collision.
Both drivers escaped without injury but emergency services remain at the scene.
A WA Police spokeswoman said an elderly man was taken to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment but his injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
Beach Road has now been closed in both directions as has Camboon Road and Harlond Avenue.
