Police in Foyle have made three arrests after a vehicle made off from a routine checkpoint on Strand Road shortly after 11.30am yesterday, but details are only emerging now.
A stinger device was used to try and stop the car at the Expressway however the driver continued to evade police, at times driving in a highly dangerous manner.
At one stage the offending vehicle rammed a police car before crossing over the border into Donegal.
The car returned to the city a short time later and was located by police in Leafair Park and three arrests made.
Two men and a woman, all in their 20s, are continuing to help police with their enquiries.
