Haz-mat team arrests Caledon man in sewer who was fleeing police Add to ...

Provincial police say it appears some people will go to any lengths to avoid arrest.

Caledon OPP say an officer saw a car travelling at high speed on Regional Road 50 on Tuesday morning, but the driver evaded police by making a sharp turn into a restaurant parking lot.

Police say the driver then went back onto Regional Road 50, collided with a van and a truck, fled the crash on foot and was seen entering a storm sewer.

Police determined there were no injuries in the collision, contained the sewer entrance and called in their urban search-and-rescue team.

The chemical, biological, and radiological team located and arrested a man hiding in the sewer, and he was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Police say the incident is still under investigation and charges are pending.
