Authorities say the driver of a stolen tractor-trailer in northeastern Colorado rammed several occupied vehicles including two police cars and caused numerous injuries before being taken into custody.
  
Morgan County Sheriff Jim Crone said in a statement on Sunday that five people including a Fort Morgan Police Officer were injured as the tractor-trailer careened through streets.
  
The events began Saturday night when the rig was stolen around Sterling and pursued by law enforcement through the communities of Brush and Fort Morgan. Authorities say the suspect eventually jumped from the moving tractor-trailer and ran into a house where he was taken into custody.
  
Crone says police shot at the driver of the stolen rig at least twice. The suspect, whose name was not released, was treated for minor injuries and booked into jail.
