Update:

At approximately 3:40 AM, a stolen vehicle was pursued by Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) units out of the city on Highway14. SPS had attempted to stop the Ford F 350 truck within the city limits by using a spike belt. The spike belt did deflate two tires, however the vehicle continued travelling on Highway 14 toward Biggar at speeds between 20 - 40 kilometers per hour on the rims of the tires.

Biggar RCMP attempted to spike belt the truck’s remaining tires east of Biggar on Highway 14 at approximately 5:00 AM, but the truck avoided the spike belt by driving into the ditch and the truck became stuck.

At that point, the occupants refused to exit the vehicle. RCMP and Saskatoon Police members surrounded the vehicle and closed off public access to the highway and started negotiating with the occupants of the vehicle. The four occupants of the vehicle exited five and a half hours later and surrendered to police without further incident. The two adult males and two adult females are now in police custody. The entire incident is now under investigation.

Biggar RCMP were assisted in controlling access to the area by Warman RCMP, Biggar Fire Department and The Saskatchewan Department of Highways.
