A driver who allegedly fled from a RIDE check and smashed into an OPP cruiser has been identified and an arrest warrant is being sought.
On Nov. 7 at around 1 a.m., members of the Wellington County OPP were conducting the check on the Hanlon Expressway near College Avenue in Guelph.
A male driver refused to provide a driver’s license, refused to turn off his vehicle when asked and then drove toward officers there.
According to a press release, the officers “narrowly avoided serious injuries [by] instinctively dodging the car.”
The man reportedly continued into Guelph and struck a marked OPP cruiser.
Due to his dangerous driving, police disengaged to prevent further public safety risk.
On Wednesday afternoon, police said they had identified the suspect and would be seeking a warrant for his arrest.
