It all started when police officers from the MRC des Maskoutains tried, around 3:45 a.m., to intercept a vehicle on rang St-Simon, following a traffic violation.
The driver and his passenger did not stop and continued on the road for about twenty kilometers before abandoning the vehicle on rue Jean in Rougemont and fleeing on foot.
The 33-year-old man and 23-year-old woman were quickly located by the dog handler and were to be met by the police, an SQ spokeswoman said.
Although she has no apparent injuries, the woman was transported to a hospital, added the SQ, specifying that the police pursuit did not cause a collision.
