Pedestrian Struck During Police Chase In Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – Three people were hurt during a dangerous car chase through part of Boston. 

 Boston Police were pursuing a driver on Columbus Avenue just before 11:30 a.m Thursday.  They say the car had stolen license plates.

That car struck a pedestrian at Columbus Avenue and Dimock Street. At that point, officers ended the chase so they could attend to the pedestrian. That person was taken to the hospital with serious leg injuries.

A short distance down Columbus Avenue, the suspects’ vehicle ran into two parked cars. That crash sent two other people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The two suspects took off running. Officers eventually caught up with the two suspects and both were arrested.

    Over a stolen plate? Really? I thought there were rules of engagement for high speed chases that precluded chasing jaywalkers at 100mph through residential areas…

    How is anything High Speed in Boston? it doesn’t say what the person was doing when they got hit either… maybe the car went up on the sidewalk and struck them – after all they were probably chasing the person w/ o sirens on and the person must have been in a crosswalk if they were crossing the street!

    it’s to bad someone got hurt – but with the number of B&E’s and other various unsolved cases it’s nice that the delinquents got caught this time – now lets hope they can afford the fines, fees and expenses of those that were effected by their actions! and anyone that says they’re innocent… innocent people don’t run!
