While on patrol in the area of 895 Morton Street, officers observed a motor vehicle drive through a red light without stopping. Officers activated their lights and sirens and attempted to initiate a traffic stop in the area of the aforementioned location. The vehicle pulled to the side of the road and the officer exited his cruiser and began walking towards the car. The officer approached the vehicle and observed a white female operator. The female suspect suddenly accelerated and fled the scene, driving through the traffic light once it had turned green. The suspect turned onto Tiverton Road as the officer followed, but as he turned onto Tiverton Road, the suspect’s vehicle was a significant distance ahead of him. The officer observed the vehicle turn left onto Lorna Road.
The officer eventually made his way towards Lorna Road, and when he turned onto the street, he observed the suspect’s vehicle which had crashed into a parked car. The female suspect was outside of the vehicle and when the officer pulled up to the scene, her vehicle, which was not secured, rolled backwards making contact with the officer’s department cruiser.
