Police are hunting for a man, following a pursuit at Lake Macquarie last night.

At around 8.20pm, officers tried to pull over a Toyota utility to breath test the driver on South Street at Windale.

Police say the male driver failed to stop and a pursuit was initiated.

He got out of the car and fled at the intersection of James and Munro Streets.

The car rolled backwards and hit the police car, but no one was injured.

Officers spoke with a female passenger, and are continuing with their inquiries to find the driver.
