Crash Ends Chase in Albertville

A dramatic high speed chase ended in downtown Albertville yesterday and sent 5 people to the hospital, three badly injured and one with life-threatening injuries. A Mitsubishi Eclipse raced away from an attempted traffic stop on Highway 431 and led police on a 2 mile chase until it went out of control and smashed into 4 vehicles in a path of destruction that stretched a city block. The Eclipse lost a wheel and most of its body panel on the passenger’s side before coming to rest and one of the victims fellout of the car. An infant was found in one of the cars that was hit but it is okay and wasn’t hurt.
