A 37-year-old man is in hospital after leading police on a pursuit in Lismore on Friday night (May 6), which ended up in the car becoming airborne.
Police allege that around 9pm officers attempted to pull over a vehicle, which was travelling along Molesworth Street, Lismore.

Police say they located empty cans of alcohol in the vehicle.
Charges are pending.
