Cop cars collide in arrest

Two police cruisers collided trying to block a stolen car in Nanaimo.

Brake failure caused one of the RCMP vehicles to hit the other during the pursuit of a stolen pickup on the Island Highway, Wednesday.

Police surrounded the truck when it stopped at a red light, but as another cruiser moved into position, it slammed into the driver's side door of another police car.

Two officers sustained minor injuries in the collision.

The suspect was arrested, and police found a replica Uzi machine gun, ammo, knives and suspected cocaine in the vehicle.
