Durham Regional Police have released video of a high-speed chase that happened on January 27. It began when police received a call from a woman claiming her vehicle was being chased by a man she knew, saying he was trying to ram her car near Rossland Rd. and Stevenson Rd. in Oshawa. The suspect took off when he saw police, driving 230 km/h at one point. Durham Regional Police's chopper Air 1 followed the vehicle for 154 kms as it drove north towards Peterborough, making it the longest helicopter pursuit in Ontario's history. The driver was arrested after hitting a spike belt and fleeing on foot. He was caught trying to get rid of evidence.
