Chester Police officer injured in suspect chase
CHESTER, Pa. - June 16, 2012 (WPVI) -- A wild police chase through the city of Chester ended with a serious crash involving at least one squad car.
Action News has learned that the high speed chase through the streets of Chester caused several crashes and a number of injuries, including two Pennsylvania State Constables, an innocent driver and the suspect.
The chased ended in an alleyway behind some homes at West 21st and Crozer Streets shortly after 2:00pm.
It is still not known why the suspect was running from police, but he crashed his car into a tree before being captured. He was transported to the hospital where his condition is currently unknown.
