UPDATE: Police chase ends with crash, sends several to hospital

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A police chase that began at a traffic stop ended with a crash, sending several people to the hospital.

According to the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of a stolen car fled from police at a traffic stop, and then crashed near Princess Place Drive in Wilmington.

Renee Beckman’s car was hit during the chase while she was inside a friend’s house. Her boyfriend, however, was inside the car when the crash happened.

“I tried to open the car door, it was stuck, and in the process I busted my lip,” said Beckman. “I drug him out of the car cause there was gas leaking out of the car. I drug him into the house, and the next thing I know the police were coming,” she said.

Beckman said her boyfriend was taken to the hospital.

The driver and backseat passenger of what deputies say was a stolen vehicle were both taken into custody. The female, front seat passenger was taken to the hospital with a head injury.
