The suspect failed to stop for police until it collided with a New Buffalo City Police patrol vehicle at the intersection of US-12 near Whittaker Street in the City of New Buffalo. Officers attempted to remove the suspect driver from his vehicle and he was not compliant. During this encounter officers learned from the subject that his blood sugar level was low. An ambulance was requested and confirmed that the subject’s blood sugar level was low and he was treated by paramedics. The driver was transported
