Abbotsford police say two people are dead following a police chase Sunday afternoon involving an allegedly stolen vehicle.
In a media release, police said patrol officers found a 1991 white Acura Integra in the area of Livingston Avenue and Maclure Road at 3:02 p.m.
Officers lost sight of the car, police said, but then relocated it at 4:11 p.m. in the area of Hillcrest Avenue and Emerson Street.
The officers knew the vehicle was involved in “a recent violent crime in another jurisdiction” police said, and that’s when a decision to pursue the car was authorized.
During the pursuit, the stolen vehicle lost control, crashing in the 31900 block of Maclure Road, police said.
