High-speed crash on cam

A man has been arrested following a high-speed crash involving four vehicles early Saturday in Victoria.

Three people were treated on scene and taken by ambulance to hospital in stable condition.

The crash was caught on video by surveillance cameras at Budget Brake and Muffler at 12:12 a.m. The video is set to Eastern Time and time-stamped the crash three hours later.

Shortly after midnight, Victoria police officers attempted to pull over a vehicle in the area of Gorge Road and Rock Bay Avenue. The driver fled at high speed and collided with three vehicles in the intersection of Douglas and Bay streets.

The surveillance footage shows a white truck colliding with three vehicles in the intersection. One car flipped and was thrown a significant distance down the road.

A cyclist riding north on the sidewalk on Douglas Street and about to enter the intersection jumped off his bike just in time to avoid the collision. Footage shows him falling backward, crawling and then running away from his bike, which lies next to the white truck when the vehicle comes to a stop.

According to police, the driver fled from the crash on foot. Officers arrested a suspect nearby.
