Woman rams Langley police cruiser twice to get away

The Surrey woman was in a stolen truck, towing a stolen flat bed, and dropping off a backhoe that was also reported stolen.

A 36-year-old Surrey woman is in jail facing numerous charges after ramming a police vehicle twice in an effort to get away.

The incident happened in a Willowbrook neighbourhood early Saturday morning.

Police received a call around 3 a.m. about a suspicious white truck leaving a backhoe in front of a home on Wildwood Drive.

A short time later, the female driver of a newer Dodge 4×4 truck returned to the home, towing a flat-bed trailer.

A Langley officer saw the truck and activated his emergency lights.

At that point, police say the Dodge pickup backed up and hit the police car at a high rate of speed.

The driver then fled the area.

Other officers located the truck in a cul de sac at Wakefield Drive and 196B Place.

Again, the driver attempted to flee, striking the same police vehicle she had hit earlier in the pursuit, with the flat-deck trailer.

The Langley RCMP officer jumped out of his vehicle and attempted to get her out of her truck to arrest her. She escaped through the passenger door and a short foot pursuit ended in her arrest.

Police suspect the woman was intoxicated at the time.

An ambulance was called and she was taken to hospital and treated for minor injuries she sustained in the collision. The woman, who is known to police, was released from hospital into a jail cell.

The pickup truck, flat bed trailer and backhoe were all reported stolen.

The officer wasn’t injured in the incident.
