Hoon on the run


Members of the public are shaken after nearly being hit by a hooning vehicle on Hobart's eastern shore this morning.

Police are hunting a man allegedly involved in the wild ride, after officers tried to intercept a blue Suzuki Baleno on Brighton Road at Brighton and it sped off.

Police later spiked the vehicle at Risdon and arrested a man at the scene. 

"Nearly killed someone at Jetty Road. I am still shaking," said one witness on social media. 

A second offender remains on the run but police say they're following a line of inquiry.
