• The vehicle did not stop and officers followed the vehicle until it went into a ditch on Camlachie Road, south of Confederation Line;
• While the driver did not sustain serious injuries, his 25-year-old female passenger sustained a fractured collar bone. She was taken to a local hospital and was transferred to London Health Sciences Centre for further treatment.
