Canby Police started chasing a Budget moving truck after recognizing the driver while on patrol. Police found probable cause to stop the truck, and when they didn’t pull over, officers started following the truck.

During the chase up the northbound lanes of the highway, near Johnson Creek, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office pitted the truck—hit it from the rear to make it turn—which caused it to crash.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office assisted Canby Police, believe that the occupants of the truck were suspects in a string of thefts.

At this time, police do not know if there are any major injuries from the crash. One person inside the Budget truck was taken to a local hospital.
