3 officers injured in arrest after driver flees Danforth crash that injures 2: Toronto police

Five people have been taken to the hospital, including three police officers, after a two-vehicle crash led to a police foot chase on the Danforth.

It happened at the intersection of Danforth and Jones Avenue around 8:23 p.m

“A vehicle was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed and then crossed into the westbound lanes causing a head-on collision,” said Sgt. Andrea Harris told CP24 at the scene.

One of the vehicles hit a pole as a result of the collision, Toronto police said.

“The driver of the vehicle, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, then fled on foot,” Harris said.

The police caught the suspect down the street. He was arrested and is currently in custody at the hospital where he is being treated.

“During the arrest, three officers were unfortunately injured,” Harris said. “One has significant injuries, but they will be fine.”

Two adults involved in the crash were transported to a trauma center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Toronto Paramedic Services said.

The officers were also taken to hospital.

The Swedish Transport Agency is investigating the collision.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area.
