In Adelaide, Australia a bizarre incident took place at a cricket ground where two men drove a stolen car straight on the field while being involved in a car chase. These men were allegedly carrying an axe and have been presented in court. The car was also involved in multiple accidents at the weekend including a dramatic interruption.
Police have confirmed that the vehicle was a red Holden Commodore sedan which was stolen on Saturday night from Royal Park. The owner of the car saw the vehicle in the Largs Bay area on Sunday at about 3:20 pm. Police also added that the owner approached the car when he was allegedly threatened by a man holding an axe.

One of the players on the pitch Kuldeep Dhungana narrated the entire incident. “The car was coming straight to us but luckily the driver changed the direction. It could have easily been a lot worse because the speed that car was going was really huge, even a small collision could be life-threatening,” he said. Meanwhile, the SA Police have confirmed that there were no injuries inflicted to the people on ground.
“The car comes in such a speed that was not really very usual, so everyone was quite scared. The car drifted from the road into the ground [while] police were chasing;” said Ankit Shrestha, the person who recorded the incident and said “it was unreal” and changed the atmosphere of the game. “The way it entered the ground, everyone’s panicking,” he added.
