Slow speed police chase ends in crash on Highway 99

massey tunnel crash september 2 2014

Highway 99 just can’t seem to catch a break these days. Tuesday afternoon police were involved in a slow speed chase that ended with a crash and an arrest on the Southbound side of Highway 99 south of the Massey Tunnel.

Reports indicate the pursuit may have begun on the northbound side, and involved a suspect who may have stolen the vehicle from his parents.

UPDATE: The incident has been cleared and the road re-opened.

While the suspect did indeed take his parents’ car without permission, he isn’t a minor, as earlier reports indicate. Delta Police clear it up, and win the day not only in apprehending the suspect without injury to anyone involved, but also with their tweet:
