If you were on or wanted to get onto the 407 Hamilton bound from Burlington Sunday afternoon police attempting to arrest the driver of a stolen vehicle would have delayed your trip for a short bit.

Just after 2:00pm, members of the Halton Regional Police were conducting an investigation into a possible stolen car when the suspect vehicle entered onto the 407 highway from Burlington.

A uniformed Officer attempted to stop the vehicle and as a result there was a collision between the police cruiser and the suspect’s car. The collision caused both vehicles to lose control and crash. The lone occupant of the stolen vehicle was arrested after a brief foot chase.

Members of the Ontario Provincial Police closed this portion of the 407 highway for a brief period as the collision was investigated.
The involved Officer sustained minor injury as a result of the collision and was transported to an area hospital. The suspect was also seen at hospital and was released a short time later.
