Today, December 31, 2015 at 5:19 p.m. a North Precinct officer was on patrol when he observed a early 2000's silver Honda Civic exceeding the speed limit in the area of S.E. 139th and S.E. Mill. The officer went to stop the vehicle. As the officer began the stop the vehicle quickly turned into a driveway, backed out and the accelerated into the officer's patrol car. This resulted in a head on collision.

Officers have established a perimeter and a K9 unit is responding. The investigation is ongoing at this time and the suspect is outstanding. The Major Crash Team is responding to investigate the incident which may have been intentional.
