At approximately 7:30 pm, police attempted to initiate a vehicle stop in the 4000 block of Van Horne Ave as it had been observed driving erratically. The driver did not stop, and continued to drive west, eventually heading out of Brandon on Hwy 1A. The driver’s speeds reached as high as 80 km/h within the residential areas, and 150 km/h on the Hwy. In an attempt to avoid recognition, the driver had tilted the seat back, and was hiding behind the window frame. The pursuit was terminated just beyond the city limits and the RCMP were notified. This matter is still under investigation.
