A teenager has had his driving privileges suspended after being detected allegedly driving at 200 km/h with three passengers at St Marys overnight.

About 11pm yesterday (Thursday, 12 March 2015), police were patrolling in an unmarked vehicle on the M4 Motorway near the M7 overpass.

The officers were travelling at the sign posted speed limit of 100km/h when they were overtaken by a 2009 model Holden Commodore, displaying red P-plates, travelling well in excess of the speed limit.

As police attempted to stop the Holden it is estimated that the vehicle reached speeds between 190 and 205km/h.

The car was eventually stopped near the intersection of Roper Road and the officers spoke to the 17-year-old male driver and searched the vehicle and its four occupants.

The teenager had his licence suspended on the spot and was issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for exceeding speed by more than 45km/h.

He is expected to appear at Mt Druitt Local Court on 16 April 2015.

Police continue with their investigations into the incident and will consider laying further charges.
