A driver of a stolen vehicle was involved in two collisions on Monday morning before being stopped by South Simcoe Police.

On Monday at 9:10 a.m., Ontario Provincial Police said an F150 pickup failed to remain at the scene of a crash on Highway 400 in Innisfil.

The suspect vehicle was last seen exiting County Road 89 before police received a report of a two-vehicle collision on County Road 89 near 10 Sideroad, Innisfil.

Police said they discovered that one of the vehicles involved in the collision matched the description of the vehicle reported by the OPP moments earlier.

Both drivers were injured and required medical attention, police say.
