Two Orange men have been arrested after being involved in unrelated police pursuits.
Central West Police District Chief Inspector Peter Atkins said the first occurred at 3.45pm on Friday where he said it was alleged a man, 37, failed to stop for police on the Northern Distributor Road.
He said a short pursuit followed before it was terminated.
Chief Inspector Atkins said about 10 minutes later police went to Peisley Street where a car had crashed into two parked cars, a brick fence and a tree. He said a man was arrested after a short foot pursuit.
Chief Inspector Atkins said the man was charged with being in a police pursuit, driving recklessly, being a disqualified driver, possessing drugs, failing to stop at an accident, resisting arrest and breaching his bail.
He is due to appear in Dubbo Local Court on Monday.
In an unrelated incident he said police pursued a car from Orange to Stuart Town from 3.05 am on Sunday.
"It was road-spiked and stopped," he said.
Chief Inspector Atkins said a man, 39, from Orange was charged with being in a police pursuit, driving dangerously, driving while disqualified, possessing drugs, possessing a knife and breaching his bail.
He is due in Orange Local Court on Monday.
Chief Inspector Atkins also said two motorists had been charged with mid-range drink driving after being stopped by police in separate incidents.
He said a man, 35, was stopped at 10pm on Saturday on Ploughmans Lane while another man, 43, was detected by a random breath test unit on Lone Pine Avenue.

He said the man allegedly had a mid-range PCA.
Chief Inspector Atkins said that as he was a provisional driver the matter would go to court.
He said he was due to appear in Orange Local Court on July 27.
