Police on the outskirts of Paris are reportedly chasing a vehicle containing four "heavily armed men" who allegedly drove straight through a motorway toll road that leads into Paris. French police are chasing a Citroën Berlingo after it smashed its way through a barrier on a main highway in the Ablis area of Yvelines in northwest France around noon, local time, British tabloid the Daily Mail reported

The chase, occurring approximately 40 miles (64 kilometers) from the center of Paris, comes as police and citizens in France's capital assess the destruction after a night of deadly and coordinated attacks in the city. The French daily newspaper Le Perisien also confirmed the chase. 

Police are also said to be hunting a black vehicle made by Spanish automaker Seat, internationally registered, which is "wanted in connection with the attacks," according to police.
