Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

WHITBY, Ont. – A 31-year-old man faces multiple charges after leading police on a chase going the wrong way on a highway east of Toronto.
Durham Regional police say they received a call from provincial police about a possible drunk driver in a van on Highway 401 around 10 p.m. Wednesday in Whitby, Ont.
Sgt. Bill Calder says officers found the van, which was reported stolen, in a Tim Hortons parking lot.
Calder alleges the driver took off and got on the highway as police cruisers followed, but turned around on an off ramp and began driving the wrong way as he spotted police.
Video from the Ministry of Transportation cameras along the highway show the van driving on and off the shoulder as squad cars chased.
Calder says the van finally came to a stop in a swampy area after it hit a guard rail, but says the man allegedly took off before being arrested nearby.
