Police on patrol spotted a Chevrolet Uplander in the area of Nairn Avenue and Panet Road at around 12:15 a.m. A computer check revealed the insurance on the vehicle was suspended. Before officers could approach the minivan, the driver took off, evading police at a high rate of speed and disobeying traffic lights.
