A woman has been charged after allegedly ramming a stolen pickup truck into two RCMP vehicles, police said.

On Nov. 18 at around 10:35 p.m., police said they were called to a report of a stolen vehicle in the Lineham Avenue area in Okotoks.

When police arrived, they spotted a white pickup truck with Ontario plates. After checking the plate number, it was discovered that the vehicle had been reported stolen. It was at this point police said the truck reversed into an RCMP vehicle and drove off.

“The truck was located a short time later where it rammed another police vehicle in an attempt to flee the area before it flipped onto its side,” an RCMP news release said Tuesday.
