Two officers were injured after police say a vehicle deliberately rammed two police cruisers in Peterborough, Ont., on Sunday evening.
A social media post issued by Peterborough Police Service chief Stuart Betts stated officers attempting to stop a vehicle “were deliberately rammed” by the driver of a fleeing pickup truck along Water Street near University Heights Boulevard.
Emergency crews were called to the area around 6:30 p.m.
Betts said two officers sustained minor injuries and the suspect was being examined for possible injuries resulting from “his deliberate actions towards officers.”
Betts posted a photo of one damaged police cruiser and said the vehicle will likely be a write-off while another is “questionable.”
