A separate witnesses also posted about the incident on Twitter.

“Someone’s just driven their car up Bourke street and smashed into something. A dozen cops heading after them,” Twitter user Dax wrote.

“The cops were somewhat stymied by a tram who apparently didn’t hear the sirens and blocked the police turn onto Swanston.
