Woman seriously injured by carjacked vehicle fleeing police
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A woman suffered life-threatening injuries when her vehicle was hit by a pickup truck fleeing from a shoplifting in a carjacked vehicle.
Tempe police say officers chased the truck after a shoplifting at a Walmart on Friday. An officer saw one occupant try unsuccessfully to push another out of the moving vehicle. Officers backed off when the driving was erratic.
A short time later, Scottsdale police say the driver ran a red light, slammed into a vehicle crossing the intersection and hit three other vehicles before coming to a stop. Two occupants ran and were quickly caught by police.
