A HIGH-SPEED chase through the streets of Ipswich ended when a Ford Orion car hit a fence in Broom Hill Road.
Stunned eyewitnesses looked on as the G-registration car was pursued by police after apparently failing to stop.
Two other police cars joined the chase and two people in the car were taken to Ipswich police station.
No-one was hurt as the car skidded on the ice and snow covered road before smashing into the wire fence close to an alleyway leading to Broomhill Park.
Some residents rushed into the street when they heard a huge bang, fearing that their children playing in the park had been hurt.
It is not thought the people in the vehicle suffered any major injuries and no one was taken to hospital.

A woman, who was visiting a relative in the street, said the speeding vehicle only just missed her and her four-year-old son.
She said: "Five seconds later and it would have been us. We had just pulled in our car and we saw a police car and another car come up the road. It went straight up and hit the fence.
"Because the road was so slippery, they couldn't stop. Had it been a brick wall, I dread to think what might have happened."
The woman, who declined to be named, said there had been a lot of children in the area in the moments leading up to crash.
She said: "There was one hell of a bang.
"Heaven forbid what might have happened if any of the kids had been coming down the alley from the park at the time.
A police spokeswoman said that two people had been arrested and questioned about a theft.
