Police are searching for three men involved in a high speed chase in Burlington.

It started around 11:45 last night when police tried to stop a Chevrolet pickup truck at Walkers Line and Mainway.

The pursuit continued onto the QEW but was called off by police after speeds reached 140 km/h.

Two police cruisers were damaged and one officer received minor injuries after the two vehicles collided during the chase.

The truck was later found on fire in a Burlington neighbourhood.
