Four people were taken to area hospitals when the driver of a white Infiniti crashed into another car after fleeing a traffic stop in Precinct 2, Woodlawn, early Monday evening.
At approximately 5:47 p.m. an officer made a traffic stop on the Infiniti on Essex Road in Woodlawn. As the officer was walking up to the stopped Infiniti it suddenly accelerated and fled the traffic stop. The officer returned to the patrol car and began a search of the area for the violator.
At approximately 5:49 p.m. the officer came upon a serious crash scene near the intersection of Brompton Road and St. Lukes Lane involving the white Infiniti and a black Nissan Altima, which injured all three of the Nissan's occupants, including two children.
The initial investigation revealed that the white Infiniti struck the black Nissan, pushing it into a tree with such force that the tree broke and fell.
The driver of the Nissan, a 32-year-old man, and his two sons, ages 9 and 14, were taken to area hospitals, all with serious injuries.
The 26-year-old male driver of the suspect vehicle, who is pending various traffic and criminal charges, was immediately apprehended and transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.
The Baltimore County Crash Team will continue to investigate this incident.
