The vehicle was found later at a residential area about one kilometre away and a second unmarked vehicle was hit.

Police say the chase ended when officers tried to set up a spike belt and the vehicle tried to get by and rolled over.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Comox Valley RCMP are still investigating the original reports of a stolen vehicle. Anyone with information is asked to call 250-338-1321.
