BÌNH DƯƠNG — Police in the southern Bình Dương Province arrested two persons on Wednesday during a car chase, which left two policemen seriously injured.
The incident occurred on Wednesday morning when a traffic patrol team from the provincial traffic police office was patrolling on Mỹ Phước - Tân Vạn Street. They noticed suspicious signs in an Innova car and ordered the driver to stop.
As the driver ignored the request and drove away, the patrol officers used two special motorbikes to chase the car.
However, a Ford suddenly crashed into the motorbikes from behind, seriously injuring the two officers who were then transported to the hospital for treatment.
Later, more than 30 policemen and special vehicles were dispatched to pursue the drivers.
The chase lasted for nearly 20km before the driver of the Innova was stopped.
The Ford’s driver tried to escape towards Đồng Nai Province. But the car hit a street lamp post when it arrived at an area near Tân Bình Ward, adjacent to Đồng Nai Province.
The two drivers have been taken into custody.
Thousands of packets of smuggled cigarettes were found inside the cars.
Bình Dương Police said they were investigating the case. — VNS
