Stolen van crashes into tree after Ottawa police chase

A brief police chase ended with a stolen van crashing into a tree on someone's front lawn early Friday morning, Ottawa police say.

It happened at about 1 a.m. at the corner of Regina Street and Lincoln Heights Road.

The reason for the chase remains unclear, but it ended when the van lost control and crashed into a tree, said police spokesperson Const. Chuck Benoit.

Three males in their late teens were arrested. One suffered non-life threatening injuries, Benoit added.
