Two men with Drumheller ties were involved in a collision while fleeing from police in the Innisfail area.

The Innisfail General Investigative Section in partnership with the Innisfail detachment were conducting proactive enforcement efforts within the town of Innisfail. Police observed two males outside a confirmed stolen Chrysler Pacifica and attempted an arrest. 

Both men managed to get into the vehicle, the driver of the stolen Pacifica attempted to flee and in the process clipped a police officer with the mirror of the vehicle. The police officer, who was on foot at the time, was not injured. 

The driver did not stop and continued to flee at a high rate of speed and subsequently collided with a civilian motorist, again did not stop and continued driving until it collided with an underground parking barricade. 

At this point, both male occupants fled on foot from police. Police arrived and after a short foot pursuit located and arrested one male on the scene. The driver of the stolen vehicle managed to escape and is currently wanted on numerous warrants for his arrest.
