AUSTIN (KXAN) — One person was taken to Austin-area hospital following a police chase that ended in a crash near the intersection of the westbound US 290 Service Road and Northbound MoPac Service road.

A second person ran from the scene on foot, prompting officers to set up a perimeter but the search was called off when officers were unable to locate the suspect.

The incident began around 4 a.m. when officers were responding to a call of someone breaking into cars. An officer spotted a car, checked the plates, and learned it was stolen. The officer tried pull the car over but the driver sped off instead. Officers chased the car until it struck an APD vehicle that was not part of the pursuit.

That’s when one of the suspects fled from the scene.
