Surrey RCMP officer injured when car flees

Police say an officer sustained minor injuries Tuesday afternoon when he attempted to pull over a car, which subsequently fled and hit him.

At about 2:40 p.m. June 10 a Surrey RCMP member tried to pull over a suspicious Toyota Matrix near 88 Avenue and 156 Street, but the car took off, striking the officer.

The vehicle was followed to the area of 92 Avenue and 172 Street, where the female driver and male passenger got out of the car and ran. After a short foot pursuit, which included a police dog, the pair were arrested and taken into custody.

The investigation continues. More details as they are known.
