RCMP cruiser rammed by pickup

A suspect received minor injuries after ramming an RCMP vehicle.

A stolen truck slammed into a Langley RCMP vehicle early Saturday morning.

The incident began when someone unloaded an orange Kubota backhoe in front of a home on Wildwood Drive late Friday or early Saturday morning.

Nearby residents were puzzled about the appearance of a piece of industrial machinery in a residential Willowbrook neighbourhood and call the Langley RCMP.

A short time later, the truck and flatdeck trailer that had dropped off the backhoe returned, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Police found the truck nearby, and an officer activated the emergency lights and sirens on his vehicle.

The driver of the Dodge pickup shifted into reverse and backed into the cruiser at a high rate of speed, said Largy.

The truck then attempted to flee, but drove into a cul-de-sac at Wakefield Drive and 196B Place, said Largy. Trying to escape from the dead end, the truck hit the same police cruiser, this time with the flat deck trailer.

The officer tried to break a window of the truck to get the driver out, but she fled out of the passenger door.

The woman driving the pickup tried to run, but was caught after a brief chase. She sustained minor injuries in the collision and was treated and released from hospital before being held in custody.

The officer was not hurt in the crashes.

The 36-year-old Surrey woman was expected to appear in court on Monday morning.

The Kubota backhoe was a rental unit, also stolen. Police aren’t certain why it was unloaded on a residential street, or why the same truck and trailer appeared to be coming back for it when police caught up with the driver.
