Police chase ends with crash in Pompano Beach; 1 subject at large

POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A stolen vehicle led police on a chase, Friday morning, that ended with a bailout in Pompano Beach.

According to Coconut Creek Police, officers were chasing a stolen silver Hyundai that had three people inside. A crash ended the chase, near Northwest 27th Avenue and Fourth Court. The Hyundai reportedly sped through an intersection and collided with an SUV and work van.

A mother and child were in the SUV at the time and were taken to the hospital and are expected to be OK.

That mother, Ana Cañada, was given a bandage for a rash she got on her arm from the airbag’s impact. Her 3-year-old daughter was in the backseat of the SUV. “The car crossed, and that’s it,” Cañada said.

They were headed south on Northwest 27th Avenue when the Hyundai hit her.

The driver of the work van also requested to be taken to the hospital.

After the crash, police said, all three subjects bailed out of the stolen vehicle. Only two of the three subjects were apprehended, while the third remains at large.

The two juvenile subjects in custody were reportedly uncooperative with police.

“I was down at the bus stop by Atlantic, and I heard the crash, and I looked back, I said, ‘Sounds like somebody crashed,’ said witness Vivian Stubbs. “I looked back, and I seen this car in the road, and the dude was running across the street, and the police, he was coming up the street so he just chased him.”

Cañada said she feels lucky that the crash happened on a residential road, that the cars weren’t driving any faster and that her daughter is OK. “My baby, she’s my baby,” Cañada said.

Police continue to search for the third subject and are asking the public for help.
