Sarnia police are investigating a vehicle that they say fled from officers and was involved in a hit and run with a police cruiser.

Around 11 p.m. Wednesday night, officers attempted to pull over a white 2016 Mercedes C4A for a Highway Traffic Act violation when they say it sped off. Over concerns for public safety, they did not chase the vehicle.

The white Mercedes was then involved in a collision with a different police vehicle that was not involved in the initial incident, police say.
