Police Friday night had to block off a section of East Patriot Avenue following a multi-vehicle crash near Patriot and Rock Road that happened around 8 pm Friday evening. 

Derby Police Lt. Jimmy Queen said that police responded to a suspicious vehicle report near the Derby Walmart. When officers arrived, Queen says, they located a vehicle in a field. As those officers attempted to make contact, the driver of that vehicle took off, almost hitting one of the officers.

The driver then headed north on K-15, then turned east onto 63rd. Lt. Queen says the vehicle ran several red lights as officers three to four blocks behind tried to catch up.

When the suspect vehicle reached the intersection of Patriot and Rock Road, Lt. Queen the car hit a trailblazer, clipped a southbound car and collided with a third vehicle before coming to a stop.

Police arrested a woman involved in the chase. Two people headed to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
