Albanese ‘booed’ at festival; Mariupol on the brink of falling to Russia; Woman dies in NSW South Coast surf tragedy

Victoria Police said they “were almost lost for words” after they clocked a vehicle speeding at 251km/h this morning.

The white Volkswagen was detected on the Calder Freeway at Woodend, north-east of Melbourne, at 12:30am.

“The vehicle was intercepted in Kyneton a short time later where the driver, a 42-year-old Hallam woman, was also seen to be on her phone,” police said.

Her vehicle has been impounded and it’s expected she will be “charged on summons with numerous offences”.

The Easter holiday period is deemed “high-risk” on Australian roads.

Victoria police are conducting a state-wide operation to curb dangerous driving, while double demerits are temporarily in place for NSW, Western Australia, and the ACT.
