One taken into custody after early Saturday morning incident on Cherrywood Drive

No serious injuries were reported after a driver hit several other vehicles, including a police cruiser, early Saturday morning, Sept. 11 in Maple Ridge.

It happened around 12:55 a.m. on Cherrywood Drive near Eagle Ave.

One witness told the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows News a car with one occupant ran into two other vehicles while driving backwards at high speed, then attempted to flee the scene and hit another car, then slammed into a police vehicle.

The driver had been speeding up and down the street and revving his engine, and when residents of Cherrywood attempted to keep him from leaving, he put his car into reverse.

“He went back so fast for 200, 300 feet,” said the witness, who did not want to be identified.

After hitting the police car, “he fell out his car, going ‘sorry, sorry, sorry,’” the witness described.

One officer was checked for injuries at the scene and the driver of the car was taken into custody.

Ridge Meadows RCMP said there were no serious injuries and the investigation is continuing.
