“The suspect eluded officers, ran through a fence where an officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit,” Westminster police said in a release to reporters.

The SUV involved apparently then intentionally rammed a Westminster police cruiser near the King Soopers at 84th and Pecos. The officer in the car wasn’t hurt.

Eventually the driver crashed on Buffalo Street just north of Trails Avenue sometime before 11 a.m. That’s where the suspect ran from the scene.
