An allegedly impaired driver of a moving van attempted to flee from officers in Toronto’s east end on Saturday night, police say.
In a tweet, Toronto police said they received reports of an impaired driver in a moving van at around 8 p.m. on Saturday evening in the area of Lake Shore Boulevard East and Leslie Street.
Police said officers found the man in a parking lot, at which point he fled “at high speed, almost striking officers,” and crashed into another car.
