A female pedestrian has been rushed to hospital after being hit by a motorbike chased by police through Sydenham.

The collision happened at 11.45 this morning on Sydenham Road.

Police say her condition is not life-threatening or life-changing.

The motorcyclist, aged 28, was also injured in the crash and police say they are waiting for an update from the hospital on his condition.
