A man was arrested in Kitchener after allegedly hitting two police cruisers, then getting involved in a separate second collision – all while driving a suspected stolen vehicle.
Waterloo Regional Police say officers first spotted the vehicle around Frederick Street, then tried to stop it on Highway 8 near Fairway Road shortly after noon Tuesday.
Instead of stopping, the vehicle allegedly accelerated and struck two cruisers before driving off.
Moments later, the same vehicle was involved in a collision at Fairway Road and Morgan Avenue.
Police say its driver tried to run away, but officers tracked him down and placed him under arrest.
No serious injuries were reported.
