Two Peel Region men face multiple charges — and one is charged with attempted murder — after a police chase early Wednesday where an Ontario Provincial Police cruiser was damaged.

The OPP said that its officers observed a car with a possible Highway Traffic Act violation around 4 a.m. on May 26 on Jane Street in Toronto, just south of Falstaff Avenue. The car allegedly failed to stop during the ensuing pursuit and rammed a police cruiser before fleeing.

The chase ended when the driver turned on to a dead-end drive and crashed into construction materials and a parked vehicle.

The driver was taken to hospital but was released without injuries. No OPP officers were injured.

Jaspuneet Bajwa, 29, of Brampton, is charged with: attempted murder, obstructing a peace officer, possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of break-and-enter instruments, dangerous driving, flight from police, and failure to comply with a court order.

Bupinder Singh, 29, of Mississauga, is charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, and possession of break-and-enter instruments.
