A 19-year-old probationary driver from Dallas has been caught driving more than double the speed limit in Greenvale yesterday afternoon.

Highway Patrol detected a white Holden utility travelling 168km/h in an 80km/h zone on Somerton Road in Greenvale at about 1pm yesterday.

Police followed the vehicle which continued at high speed before it turned onto Wildwood Road, Oaklands Junction.

It is alleged the car then accelerated to a speed in excess of 100km/h on St Johns Road, a 50km/h zone.

The driver then swerved to avoid crashing into a car before he lost control, skidded from the road and became bogged.

His vehicle was impounded for 30 days and he is expected to be charged on summons with numerous traffic-related offences.
