CALGARY — Five police cars and a couple of civilian vehicles were damaged after a driver in a stolen truck went on a rampage through northwest Calgary.

Police say they were notified about the truck at about 5:20 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Investigators were able to find it by using a GPS unit installed inside the vehicle and monitoring the actions of the driver through the use of the police helicopter.

The driver was seen driving at a high rate of speed with no care to public safety, even before ground vehicles attended the call — crashing over sidewalks, running red lights, driving through bike lanes, and into oncoming traffic at different occasions.

Police eventually were forced to stop the vehicle by pinning it against a light standard and a parked civilian vehicle.

No one was injured in the incident but the driver was arrested and charges are pending.
