Two central Alberta women were arrested following a stolen vehicle report, a brief police chase, and several collisions.
Two females are facing charges after a stolen vehicle from Sylvan Lake was involved in multiple collisions in Red Deer.
At about 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Sylvan Lake RCMP responded to a call about a vehicle theft.
The stolen vehicle was observed entering Red Deer after being driven erratically on Hwy 2. An initial pursuit by Red Deer RCMP was quickly stopped in the interests of public safety.
A short time later, the same vehicle was involved in a collision, striking two other vehicles at 51st Avenue and 48th Street in the city.
The stolen vehicle continued driving northbound in the southbound lanes of 51st Avenue, then turning west on 59th Avenue.
Travelling into oncoming traffic, this vehicle struck a van. The two female occupants then exited it and attempted to steal the van. Police managed to stop the theft and arrest both women.
No injuries were reported during this incident. Charges are pending.
