Quinte West OPP have issued a warrant for a man they believe to be responsible for hitting an officer with a car, while running from police.
Officers first responded to a dangerous driver call, on the evening of January 3rd and stopped the vehicle.
As officers approached, the driver sped away and hit one of the officers, who had to be treated for minor leg injuries.
The driver was able to get away from police, due to poor road conditions and heavy civilian traffic, but the black Pontiac G5 was found abandoned on the eastbound 401, west of Napanee, later that night.
Investigators say they have a good idea who the driver was, but aren’t releasing his name, since there’s no risk to public safety.
Further updates will be released when an arrest is made.
