Two people are in custody this morning after an Alberta sheriff was run off the road north of Calgary while trying to pull over a pickup truck.
It happened late Monday afternoon on Highway 2 near Carstairs.
The truck was speeding and swerved into the sheriff's car, sending it off the road and into a cable barrier, RCMP said.
The two people in the truck then stole a second vehicle, assaulting its driver.
RCMP, Calgary police and a HAWCS helicopter were all called in and found the stolen truck crashed in a ditch.
Charges are pending against both suspects.
