A burglary suspect fleeing from Cleveland, Tenn., police crashed into a minivan Saturday, injuring a woman in his own SUV and two women in the other vehicle.
Cleveland police spokeswoman Evie West said Christopher Stringer, whose 21st birthday is today, was the suspect in a theft from a vehicle on Fulbright Road. Office J.R. Burnett spotted Stringer's Chevy Tracker SUV at 7:40 a.m. and tried to pull him over, but the Chevy fled. Stringer blew through a stop sign at Chambliss Avenue and 20th Street and hit a Nissan Quest, West said.
The Quest's driver and passenger, both women, were taken to SkyRidge hospital with injuries. A passenger in Stringer's vehicle, Valerie Keller, was taken to Erlanger in Chattanooga.
Stringer faces charges of felony reckless endangerment, driving on a suspended licenses, stop sign violation, violation of financial responsibility law, auto burglary and theft, West said.
She said the Chevy Tracker was impounded and stolen property was recovered.
