The stolen black Jeep had veered onto the wrong side of the road and hit a tree just metres away from the family home
Denishar, 11, was left traumatised as she was strapped to her wheelchair when police broke in
The allegedly stolen vehicle, which police had been searching for since the morning, had veered onto the wrong side of the road.
The chaotic incident had traumatised Denishar, who is confined to a wheelchair after she was electrocuted in her own yard.
The schoolgirl was put into a coma and suffered brain damage following the incident in March.
Police had been searching for the stolen vehicle since Wednesday morning but crashed outside the family home in the afternoon
She was shocked with up to 240 volts which is almost five times more than is bearable, with anything over 50 volts being considered dangerous.
‘They’ve just run through the door, pulled their tasers out while my little sister’s sitting here,’ said Denishar’s older sister Jeanette Woods.
‘I think we’ve gone through a lot of trauma.’
Western Australia police are searching for the man involved in the crash of the stolen vehicle.
