Police chase closes Highway 13 overnight

Highway 13 was closed for about two hours overnight after a suspected tobacco smuggler led police on a high speed chase 

A young man was arrested at around 4 a.m. after he led police from Highway 40 east-bound in Baie-d'Urfé to Highway 13.

Police officers laid out a spike-strip near the ramp to Highway 13 south-bound and after driving over it, the suspect lost control of his vehicle and struck a police car.

No one was injured.

A 23 year old man from Oka was taken into custody and is expected to be in court later today.
