Manhunt is on for ute driver clocked at 92kmh in a 60 zone

A UTE driver who was clocked at 92kmh in a 60 zone before speeding away from police at Eli Waters will cop a $5500 fine if caught.

Police were performing speed checks using a mobile radar device on the Hervey Bay-Maryborough Rd on Thursday night when they caught sight of the speeding utility about 8.30pm.

They clocked the ute at 92kmh near the intersection of the Pialba-Burrum Heads Rd, which is a 60kmh zone.

Police activated their lights and sirens and performed a U-turn to follow the speeding driver.

But the ute continued to speed away and police were forced to call off their pursuit.

They are now searching for the driver who, under tough new penalties established by the State Government, will cop a minimum $5500 fine if brought before the courts for evading police.

The vehicle is described as a white in colour and has an aluminium tray with no sides.

Anyone who might know who the driver is should contact police on 4123 8111 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
