UPDATED: Woman arrested after slow-speed chase

There was a lengthy but low-speed police chase overnight Sunday as patrol officers pursued an erratically-driven stolen car from Laval onto the Island of Montreal.

Laval police got a call about a motorist driving in a dangerous manner near the intersection of Cure Labelle Boulevard and Notre Dame short after one o'clock Monday morning.

When patrol officers caught up with her, she refused to pull over and boarded Highway 13.

Officers with Provincial Police and the Montreal force got involved as the car proceeded onto the Island of Montreal.

Along the way, two Laval cruisers collided, sending two officers to hospital with non threatening neck and back injuries.

Constable Nathalie Lorrain said the collision occurred near the entrance to the Highway 20 near Normand.

“The access isn’t very clear, it’s just a line on the pavement, no cement blocks or anything, and there was confusion between the two drivers, one wanted to pass before the other one and they collided.”

The chase finally ended on the Highway 13 service road when the woman lost a wheel to her vehicle.

A 49-year old woman, who was driving without a valid license, faces multiple charges including drunk driving and refusing to obey police.

Laval police say the suspect stole the car from an acquaintance.
