NZ woman charged over fatal vehicle hit in Perth

A woman has been charged with manslaughter after allegedly fatally hitting a motorbike rider just moments before crashing a Ford Falcon into a pole and running away.

The 35-year-old New Zealand woman is due to face court on Saturday accused of hitting a man, aged in his 20s, who was given first aid by police but later died in hospital.

She is accused of having also been involved in an on-and-off police chase for about 40 minutes in Perth when police tried to stop her in Seville on Wednesday before crashing into a pole and running into bushland where she was arrested on Thursday.
