A man has been after a car left a trail of damage in York.
The incident began when a white VW Scirocco collided with an ambulance on the A64 at Bilbrough Top at around 4.10pm on Friday (13 May).
North Yorkshire traffic police traced the Scirocco – but it failed to stop.
Officers then pursued the vehicle towards York on Tadcaster Road.
When it reached South Bank, it collided with two parked vehicles on Balmoral Terrace – causing damage to a silver Honda CRV and a VW Golf estate.
The passenger in the Scirocco, a 34-year-old man, left the vehicle on Brunswick Street. He was arrested nearby just before 5pm.
He is wanted in connection with an arson incident in Humberside.
The Scirocco left the scene and it was found abandoned at Bishopthorpe just after 5pm. Reports suggest a man ran off to the other side of the river.
Enquiries are ongoing to trace the driver.
No injuries were reported and scene was clear by 8.30pm. The collision with the ambulance was said to be minor.
