The truck was first seen by this reporter heading down Seward St. towards Shrewsbury St. The truck was driving on the sidewalk alongside residences before coming to a complete stop at the bottom of Seward St.

The vehicle then took a right turn and then stopped in front of the British Beer Company. It was followed by a single WPD cruiser before other officers arrived on the scene. After stopping briefly, the officer of the vehicle then drove towards Albany St to avoid the other WPD cruisers.

The chase continued throughout the neighborhood for nearly 10 minutes before the vehicle was finally stopped after crashing into several vehicles on Wilson St and the operator was arrested.

The operator resisted arrest on multiple occasions and throughout the time the operator was fleeing from the police, it was dragging its bumper under the truck and slamming on the horn.
