Four Sent To Hospital Following Police Chase Accident

By:  Newsroom

Four people were transported to local hospitals after a police chase ends in a rollover accident near 84th and Havelock.

According to Officer Katie Flood just before 2pm an officer spotted a Silver Chevy Equinox that was said to be involved in several check fraud incidents around town.  The vehicle was heading Northbound on 70th and Pioneers. 

A second officer pursued the vehicle near 70th and Vine.  Due to excessive speeds, Flood says the chase had to be terminated. 

She says because the Chevy was headed toward the interstate, the Nebraska State Patrol was called in.

Flood says the SUV rolled near 84th and Havelock, just West of Leighton.  Three people inside the vehicle were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Two other vehicles, not involved in the chase, collided while trying to avoid the incident.  One person was transported to the hospital from that accident with non-life threatening injuries.

Police continue to investigate the check fraud incident.
