One man is in police custody after he tried to avoid a roadblock and crashed his car in the process.
Police said members of the Port of Spain Task Force set up a road block near Independence Square, on Friday night, when they saw a car reversing.
The car crashed into another car behind it and sped off on Picadilly Street before crashing into a pavement near William H. Scott hardware.
The driver was not injured.
Police searched the car. They said the driver tried to avoid the roadblock because he did not have a licence or certificate of insurance.
He was arrested and is expected to be charged.
The exercise was conducted by Supt Ramnarine, Insp Knott, Sgt Alexander and Cpls Sookhoo, Thomas, Duncan and St Bernard
