Two people are in custody and a third suspect is on the loose after a routine traffic stop led to a police pursuit and crash on Wednesday night.

Around 9 p.m. on April 16, a Chesterfield County Police officer attempted to stop a vehicle for reckless driving near the intersection of Walmsley Boulevard and Route 1/Jefferson Davis Highway. When the driver refused to pull over, a pursuit ensued. The chase ended in a crash near the intersection of Route 1/Jefferson Davis Highway and Cogbill Road, where the fleeing vehicle ran off the road and crashed.

Two of the people inside the car were arrested at the scene and transported to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The third person inside the car fled; police are still searching for the suspect.
