A suspect Miami Gardens Police identified as Sergio Dorado took officers on a chase Thursday afternoon.

First, the 47-year-old man allegedly hit a car with his truck and fled from Bunche Park Drive and Northwest 22nd Avenue in Opa-locka.

Then an officer got out of her cruiser in an attempt to stop him, and he allegedly hit her vehicle near Northwest 156th Street and Northwest 22nd Ave. After that, police said, he crashed into an unmarked police unit.
