Crashing a stolen Toyota Tacoma pickup truck into a parked car ended badly for a couple last Wednesday.

Ridge Meadows RCMP say that a vehicle that was stolen earlier from Mission collided into a car that was parked on Alouette Road, at about 7:30 a.m.

The man and woman who were inside the truck then tried to take off, but thanks to a bystander, or bystanders, the man was held until police arrived.

Meanwhile, the woman tried to escape by wading across the South Alouette River. But Mounties picked her up on the other side.

The pair haven’t appeared in court.

RCMP wouldn’t say how many people were involved or how the suspect was actually detained or how long it was until police arrived.
