A truck driver has been arrested after allegedly dangerously fleeing from police in Wellington on Saturday night.

Police attempted to stop the man on Wellington Urban Motorway just after 10pm, concerned about his dangerous driving.

Road spikes were used unsuccessfully and the driver continued to flee before being stopped around an hour later.

A 40-year-old man was arrested and is expected to face Wellington District Court on Monday.
