Three adults and a baby were injured when two cars collided at a garage following a police pursuit in Greater Manchester.
Officers stopped a van near the A580 in Swinton on Wednesday, seizing drugs with an estimated value of £100,000 and arresting two men.
Two more men fled the scene, one on foot and one in a Volkswagen Golf.
Following a pursuit, the car collided with a Honda Civic at the garage in Little Hulton.
The passengers of the Honda - a man and woman in their 40s, a woman in her 20s and a one-year-old baby - were treated for minor injuries.
The Golf's driver and the man who fled on foot were arrested, along with the two other men, on suspicion to supply and possession of class A drugs.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said 2kg (4lbs) of class A drugs were seized from two vehicles.
He said the driver of the police car which had pursued the Golf was suspended from driving duties in line with force guidelines but had since been reinstated.
