The Special Investigations Unit is looking into a series of events that ended with a serious crash in Whitby.
A suspect is in serious condition after he crashed the car he was driving – allegedly stolen by gunpoint in Claremont. Police say he is also wanted for thefts of cars in Scarborough and Pickering.
A Durham police helicopter followed the fleeing SUV, but no cruisers were involved in an actual chase. Instead, officers say they used a spike belt to stop the car.
The driver was airlifted to hospital and will face several charges.
