The driver lost control and crashed in the area of Kimberley Avenue and Gateway Road. Three males were taken into custody, including the driver, while a 15-year-old boy fled on foot.

The canine unit eventually tracked him down hiding in the 700 block of Blantyre Avenue.

The driver was charged and released on a promise to appear, while the passengers were not charged.
