Stolen vehicle rams into police cruiser in Mississauga, police say
Police say 2 in custody after 4 vehicles involved in collision
Peel Regional Police say two people are in custody after four vehicles including two police cruisers were damaged as police tried to stop a stolen vehicle in Mississauga.
Police say they received a call Monday at 9:39 p.m. regarding a disturbance on Sherwood Mills Boulevard, which is located near Mavis Road and Eglinton Avenue West.
"As officers arrived on scene, they noticed a vehicle attempting to leave that residence. So officers followed that vehicle, attempting to perform a traffic stop on that suspect vehicle," said Const. George Tudos.
"That suspect vehicle then rammed one of the police cruisers, resulting in a collision with two of our police vehicles, the suspect vehicle and also a civilian vehicle."
Police say one female was found in the area with minor injuries while one police officer sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
Police closed Eglinton Avenue West at Heatherleigh Avenue to investigate the collision. Images tweeted by the force showed two police cruisers damaged. A silver car could be seen pinned by a police cruiser on the front lawn of a property.
Police say two people have been arrested and the major collisions unit has taken over the investigation.
