A police chase of a stolen vehicle ends in a head-on collision hit-and-run.
According to the report, a BCSO deputy attempted to stop a stolen vehicle after receiving the call around 4:30 p.m. When the deputy arrived on the scene, the stolen vehicle and a motorcyclist got into an accident. As the deputy was approaching the scene, the driver of the stolen vehicle took off to evade capture. The report didn’t say how long the chase lasted, but the chase stretched at least three miles from the original crash scene.
After an unknown time, the luck of the stolen vehicle ran out. As the chase neared Broadway and Prosperity, the stolen vehicle collided head-on with an innocent bystander. The crash was violent enough to stop the chase right there. The suspect was arrested at the scene by the deputy and paramedics were called to the scene. Luckily, none of the injuries are life-threatening.
The motorcyclist from the first crash and the driver of the second car were both taken to the hospital in stable condition. Officers did not say what the exact injuries were, but they were major enough to be transported. The names of those involved have been held by choice of the victims. The suspect identity is being held until the investigation closes. Stay with us and we will provide updates as police release them.
