Three flee police in traffic stop, crash on Seneca Road

SIX NATIONS — On Saturday, May 1 at 11:21 PM, while police were on general patrol, a grey 2006 Buick Sedan vehicle was observed to have completely disobeyed a posted stop sign at the intersection of 5th Line Road and Seneca Road.

Police activated their emergency equipment and the vehicle stopped for police directly in front of the intersection of 4th Line Road and Seneca Road. As police were notifying the Communications Centre of the traffic stop, the vehicle fled through the intersection, continuing southbound on Seneca Road.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver refused and continued travelling at a high rate of speed, southbound on Seneca Road.

The suspect vehicle approached 3rd Line Road and completely failed to stop at the 4-way intersection. Police observed sparks fly from the vehicle from a distance, as it appeared to have lost control. Upon arriving at the collision scene, police observed that the vehicle had entered the ditch. The vehicle also made contact with a hydro pole, which caused the transformer to begin sparking.

Police approached the vehicle which received major front-end damage. All three people involved in the crash were conscious and still inside the vehicle upon emergency services arriving.

A male driver and two occupants were transported to hospital. Hydro One attended and repaired the damage.

The investigation is continuing with several charges pending. No names have been released.
