Colorado Springs police are looking for a man who rammed a police car, narrowly missing a detective, then took off.

Community Impact Team detectives Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. spotted a stolen vehicle in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store at Platte Avenue and  Union Boulevard. When they tried to talk to the suspect, he put the car into reverse, slammed into the front of the police cruiser, then took off at a high rate of speed.

Other officers were unable to stop him.

The man was spotted shortly after that in the white Hyundai Sonata headed south on Interstate-25 towards Pueblo. There was damage to the car’s right rear passenger door and rear end damage from hitting the cruiser, police said.

Police turned over the pursuit to the Colorado State Patrol. The Colorado license plate number was 718ZBK.
