Police chase ends in multi-vehicle crash in Sunrise

SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) - A police chase that started in Hollywood came to a crashing end in Sunrise, with two people taken into police custody.

According to Hollywood Police, their officers were pursuing a vehicle in Hollywood that ended in a multi-vehicle crash in Sunrise, Wednesday afternoon.

The crash involving at least four vehicles happened along 19th Street and Sunset Strip in Sunrise, at around 2:45 p.m.

Officials said two suspects were injured and transported to Broward Health Medical Center. Another driver was also hurt and taken to a nearby hospital.

7News sources said that police were conducting a narcotics investigation. When they tried to pull over the subject driving the white Honda he took off. The driver then led police on a chase up Interstate 95.

Police said at some point, the driver tried to hit an officer. No officers were injured, however.

The chase ended in Sunrise after the suspect sped through a stop sign before colliding into the other vehicles.

Police have not released the name or details about the subject’s injuries.

Crews have been in the process of cleanup for the past few hours.

One resident told 7News what the commotion sounded like. “I was in the house with my baby, laying down, and I heard the boom, boom, boom,” she said. “Then I hear my landlord screaming, making noise, so I ran outside, and when I ran outside, I see a cop jump on top of the Honda in the middle, yank the body out, one of the suspects, I guess, and then the other suspect, he was already on the ground, unresponsive.”

Both suspects now face aggravated battery charges.
