ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) – Two people have been injured and a third is at large after a police chase initiated when a Secret Service officer saw a driver going the wrong way in downtown Washington.
News outlets report the chase ended in a head-on collision in suburban Virginia on Interstate 66.
The Secret Service said one of its officers spotted a car traveling the wrong way on I St. NW in Washington about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. The officer tried to stop the car, but it drove off and crossed into Arlington, Virginia, traveling the wrong way on I-66.
The wrong-way driver struck another car and fled on foot. A passenger in his car and the driver of the other vehicle were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
