It all started with a story like I never covered before! There was a police chase involving both the OPP and Durham Regional Police that started in Ajax, working its way Eastbound along the 401 to Thickson Rd. in Whitby. Here is where the driver exited the highway, temporarily losing police and hitting several cars along the way. Police rediscovered the vehicle's location and the pursuit was started again. Eventually the driver drove onto Gallimere Court in Whitby, and realizing he had no exit, drove between 2 homes, down a hill then up a treed embankment at the back of the properties. All this with an OPP SUV in tow. After the driver fled the vehicle a foot pursuit was started and the suspect was taken into custody in a marsh area beyond the fence line. With assistance from the CTV News helicopter and another CTV ground crew, we were able to put together this full piece for the 6 and 11:30 broadcasts.
