This was marked the end of one driver’s attempt to evade police on Friday night.
The incident began when a witness reported a van on the southbound carriageway of the A1(M) was “all over the road”, Sgt Paul Cording of North Yorkshire Police reported on Twitter.
Officers stopped the car, but as they went to speak to the driver he sped off.
“Twice the driver tried to reverse ram my colleagues & drove dangerously along the A59,” Sgt Cording said.
“We were joined by further roads policing colleagues along with ARVs and dogs before a ‘Stinger’ was successfully deployed. The vehicle however continued to drive and reverse rammed one of our FSU (Force Support Unit) colleagues.”
The driver was arrested and police have taken a blood sample for testing.
