An independent inquiry into a fatal police pursuit in the Bay of Plenty found officers should have abandoned the high speed chase as it put the public at risk. In October 2010 a stolen ute driven by 21-year-old Harley Wilson crashed on Jellicoe Street in Te Puke, east of Tauranga, following a police pursuit which covered 38km and lasted 17 minutes. Mr Wilson and 25-year-old passenger Michael Keepa died at the scene.
