ESSA - A stolen car was heavily damaged this morning (Wednesday) when it was driven into a moving train and then into a parked car in the village of Baxter.

A 26-year-old Essa man was arrested after an off-duty OPP officer tailing the stolen car called the police communications centre for help.

The off-duty officer said car he was following was swerving all over the road.

Police said the car was stolen from somewhere in Essa just before 6 a.m. For reasons police didn't reveal, the stolen car collided with three moving CP Rail cars on County Road 21 and then continued into Baxter where it collided with a parked car.

The driver wasn't charged with impaired driving.

Police managed to stop the stolen car, but when an officer went to arrest him he reportedly resisted and assaulted the officer.

The Essa man was to appear in court for a bail hearing sometime today. He faces charges of resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, theft over $5,000, possession over $5,000 and dangerous driving.

Police said damage was excessive to both vehicles and the rail cars received minor damage.
