The chase of a stolen car ended in a crash on Richmond Highway Thursday night.
It began when a Fairfax County police officer spotted the car near Reddick Avenue. When he tried to stop it the driver took off, north on the highway, and the officer gave chase. The car left the road and hit a light pole after the officer used a bumper-tapping maneuver to force it to stop.
The car was stolen in Washington, DC earlier in the week. Its driver and two passengers were taken to the hospital. Charges are pending.
