A 33-year-old man from York Area was arrested in Scarborough on Thursday after allegedly stealing a Purolator supply truck, then crashing into a number of automobiles in an effort to evade police.
The province’s police watchdog, the Particular Investigations Unit (SIU), has opened an investigation into the incident.
In line with a information launch from the SIU, the person stole an unspecified automobile in Whitby Thursday morning the place Durham police pursued the suspect.
The suspect was then concerned in a collision at Neilson Street and Finch Avenue East in Scarborough, after which he fled on foot.
He then stole a Purolator truck, the SIU stated. At this level, round 10:30 a.m., cops from Durham, York Area and Toronto have been in pursuit.
Police stated the suspect crashed the truck into no less than three automobiles earlier than being stopped at Brimley and Ellesmere Roads in Scarborough, the place an officer deployed a Taser. The person was arrested and brought to hospital with severe accidents.
There have been no different reported accidents concerned with the opposite collisions.
