Canada police chase man bypassing US border crossing
BLAINE, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a police chase ensued at the northern U.S. border crossing after a man in a truck fled from Washington state to Vancouver, B.C. without stopping for international travel processing.
The Bellingham Herald reports that the unidentified man in his 20s in a blue Ford pickup truck with Oregon plates bypassed the Peace Arch border crossing Saturday morning.
Border crossing agents reported it but he refused to pull over, evading multiple police officers for miles.
He was finally arrested by Vancouver police nearly 30 miles (48 kilometers) later, after the truck crashed into a Mazda sedan and the Rufus Drum Shop.
The 32-year-old man from Vancouver in the Mazda suffered minor injuries.
The driver of the truck faces charges of dangerous driving and causing a police pursuit.
