A woman has been arrested after allegedly driving through a Victorian border post into South Australia.

Patrol cars then chased the driver and road spikes were deployed to stop the car, police said.

She has been charged with a police chase and violations related to failing to stop at the checkpoint.
South Australia closed its border with Victoria after a Covid cluster was found in Melbourne last month.
Acting Victorian Prime Minister James Merlino said a state-wide lockdown in Melbourne would be extended for another week.
