The female driver was taken into custody without further incident

Red Deer RCMP arrested a woman late Thursday night after the stolen truck she was driving collided with a police vehicle during her efforts to flee.

At 11:45 p.m. on Sept. 27th, Red Deer RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in an alley in Riverside Meadows. RCMP determined the truck had been stolen and boxed it in. The truck reversed into one of the police cars and attempted unsuccessfully to push it out of the way; the female driver was taken into custody without further incident. The police officer occupying the police vehicle at the time of the collision was not injured. RCMP seized what is believed to be fentanyl during the arrest.
