- the driver of the vehicle drove into oncoming traffic at a high speed, engaging police officers in a vehicle pursuit

- at the intersection of Shuter Street and Jarvis Street, the vehicle drove through a red light and collided with a taxi

- the vehicle then drove north on Jarvis Street, in oncoming traffic, to Dundas Street East, pursued by police vehicles

- at the intersection of Jarvis Street and Dundas Street East, the vehicle made a left turn into oncoming eastbound traffic, colliding with another taxi

- the vehicle continued westbound on Dundas Street on the east sidewalk, narrowly missing pedestrians

- the driver of the vehicle attempted to make a left turn onto Mutual Street

- in doing so, he lost control of the vehicle and it struck a police car and garbage cans, disabling the vehicle
