LAMBTON COUNTY, Ont. — Police are searching for a man who allegedly fled from officers in southern Ontario by driving through several farm fields in a pickup truck that was in a state of disrepair.
Provincial police say officers spotted a pickup truck towing a flatbed trailer containing a large bulldozer track in the Township of Dawn-Euphemia, Ont., on Saturday.
Police say officers tried to pull the vehicle over but the driver didn't stop and took off into a nearby field.
Officers later found the trailer but have yet to locate the driver and the pickup, which they describe as a red 2000 Chevrolet Silverado with no driver's side door, no side mirrors, a smashed rear window and dents and scratches throughout.
Police say they have identified the driver and intend to prosecute him for charges including driving while disqualified, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.
