A Delta man who went on a wild driving rampage behind the wheel of a Mustang in North Vancouver is facing 11 charges.

RCMP Sgt. Peter DeVries says the 44-year-old began his dangerous driving spree Monday night by allegedly accosting a couple and running his vehicle into the woman, who was launched over the hood of the car.

DeVries says the driver then fled the scene and approached a group of four women and ordered them to get into his car.

When they refused, he struck one of them with his car, injuring her as she was pinned against a pole, although DeVries says both the first and second victims' injuries are not life threatening.

DeVries says the same car then hit another vehicle, ramming it two more times before the suspect drove up to a third woman, who he threatened to kill when she wouldn't get into his car.

Police were finally able to box in the Mustang and arrest the driver, who faces charges ranging from dangerous driving causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and impaired driving.
