Toronto police removing driver suspected of multiple hit-and-runs caught on video

This could be a scene straight out of an action-packed movie. Incredible footage of a police teardown involving a driver charged with a hit-and-run in Toronto has gone viral.

Originally shared by Instagram account Ontario Photography 101, the video reportedly shows Toronto police officers pulling over and boxing into a car.

It was captured September 3 on Queens Quay and shows a dramatic storyline.

Right off the bat, the driver of a black Jeep pulls up in the street and is pushed away by a Toronto police cruiser. The policeman immediately gets out of the car and walks over to the passenger side.

Another police cruiser quickly joins the panel and flanks the Jeep on its left side, essentially pinning the vehicle between the two police cars.

Sirens blare and lights flash as a third and fourth cruiser pull up to the scene.

The caption of the video reads “a cruiser [pins] one vehicle, then a standoff occurs and a few other cruisers respond to the incident.”

An update has been added to the caption which alleges the driver of the Jeep hit two pedestrians and a cyclist and they were fleeing the scene.

A second video of the incident was also captured and shared on Instagram. It shows the officers demanding that the driver get out of the Jeep, guns drawn.

The video is linked to the arrest of a 31-year-old Jeep Patriot driver over the weekend, who allegedly hit a 65-year-old cyclist, a 26-year-old and a 25-year-old cyclist, according to the Toronto Star.

The newspaper reports that the first hit and run occurred in Yonge and St. Clair and the driver was arrested at Lower Jarvis Street and Queens Quay East.
