The vehicle was engaged in a high speed pursuit along the Mid Western Highway, towards Cowra, at alleged speeds of up to 180 kilometers per hour. 

Police terminated the pursuit, the vehicle last seen in Cowra where the occupants allegedly failed to pay for petrol.

The public are urged NOT to approach the vehicle or its occupants.
