Vancouver police cruisers, fleeing car, damaged at end of early morning chase

BY , Mar 3, 2020 6:35 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Apr 24, 2020 3:32 PM

Police say one man suffered minor injuries when his car and several police cruisers collided numerous times at the end of a brief pursuit in Vancouver.

It happened just after 2 a.m. when Const. Tania Visintin says officers tried to pull over a suspicious vehicle believed to be linked to break-ins on the city's west side. Visintin says in an email that the driver sped away, ignoring the lights and sirens.

The 38 year old Vancouver man was stopped a short distance away after what Visintin describes as "a number of collisions" with the cruisers.

The car and cruisers were badly damaged but Visintin says the suspect has only minor injuries and no officers were seriously hurt. The man remains in custody and police say charges of dangerous driving and possession of stolen property are expected.
