TRIANGLE, Va. (WUSA9) -- Police are still looking for a man who they say tried to run over police officers while driving away from them in Triangle, on Friday.

Christopher Blakeney, 29, of Triangle was just about to be arrested for some active warrants, when he crashed into a car, then a police cruiser to get away, police said.


"Officers began to approach the vehicle and ordered the accused to surrender. The accused then put the vehicle in reverse and struck an occupied vehicle which was waiting behind his vehicle. The accused then put the vehicle in drive and drove towards one of the officers. The officer jumped out of the way to avoid being struck. The accused then almost struck a second officer as he was evading capture. In the process, the accused struck one of the officer's cruisers and proceeded to drive down concrete steps beside one of the apartment buildings before stopping and fleeing on foot," Prince William County Police said in a news release.

It happened at around 8:35 a.m. at the 19300 block of Bellau Woods Drive, police said.

Blakeney is "wanted for attempted malicious wounding of a law enforcement officer, attempted assault & battery of a law enforcement officer, felony hit & run, felony eluding, destruction of property, and reckless driving," police said.
