The Vancouver Police Collision Investigation Unit is investigating after a stolen pickup truck rammed a police car following a suspected break-and-enter.

Around 9:45 p.m. on January 3rd, Vancouver Police officers interrupted a break-in to a business in the 3400 block of Lougheed Highway. The male suspect got into a stolen pickup truck where there was a waiting female passenger. The driver drove away, east on Lougheed Highway. Police attempted to box and pin the stolen truck. The driver of the truck smashed through the police cars and was last seen driving into Burnaby. Police did not pursue the truck out of concerns for public safety.

A short time later, police found the truck abandoned at Eton and Willingdon Street in Burnaby.  The man driving the stolen truck and his female passenger have not bee located.

The driver was white, in his 50s, 5’10” tall, with a heavy build. He was wearing a toque and blue jeans and is believed to have suffered a cut to his head in the collision.

There is no description of his female passenger.

One police officer suffered minor injuries in the collision and was treated by paramedics at the scene. The collision also resulted in minor damage to a police car.
