At around 1 p.m. officers responded to 12701 NW 17 Place in regards to a disturbance between a mother and her son.

Officers lost sight of the car and numerous 911 calls were then received of a police car driving erratically, striking approximately three civilian cars.

The subject was then located once he lost control and crashed into a building at 2601 NW 175 Street.

Miami Beach Police Department Motorcycle Units, working a funeral in the area, witnessed the accident and observed the subject attempting to flee on foot. They then assisted Miami-Dade Police with apprehending the subject.

The subject was treated on scene by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue for minor injuries. Victims of the hit-and-run were being treated for minor injuries and none of the officers were injured during the incident.
