Vancouver police have arrested a teenage girl after an alleged hit and run and “reckless tour” of downtown.

Police say two people received minor injuries in a hit and run involving a white van around 3:20 a.m. Saturday morning.

About 15 minutes later, investigators say, officers working in the Downtown Eastside spotted the same van driving erratically through the area.

Police say when they put their sirens on and tried to pull the vehicle over, the driver allegedly sped up and refused to pull over for several blocks.

They say the same vehicle was found parked not far away at 4 a.m. and the lone driver was arrested as she walked away.

Police say they are recommending charges of dangerous driving against the 16-year-old girl from Mission, B.C., and note that the vehicle has been seized.
