An 18-year-old Markham man is facing several charges after leading police on a chase through a cornfield in Morris-Turnberry, northwest of Kitchener.
OPP say an officer clocked an SUV going 191km/h in a 90 zone on Morris Road on Wednesday evening. When the officer went to pull the driver over, the BMW slowed and pulled onto a private laneway before heading right into a cornfield.
The vehicle allegedly bottomed out and nearly got stuck several times before the driver looped back around toward the laneway. The officer positioned his cruiser to block the exit and arrest the driver.
The 18-year-old faces charges of dangerous driving, flight while pursued by peace officer, racing a motor vehicle, and driving while under suspension.
The BMW, which was leaking fluid, was impounded for a week and the driver is due in Goderich court on August 15th.
