Wild police chase ends on the Sprain Brook with a crash, arrests

Police say a wild car chase along the Sprain Brook Parkway ended in a multi-vehicle crash at the Greenburgh-Mount Pleasant border. Investigators say the incident began in Yorktown when four people were allegedly involved in a robbery at a Toys R Us. Officials believe the suspect stole DVDs and other merchandise from the store and then tried to flee southbound on the Sprain Brook.

Having a description of the suspect's vehicle, police spotted the car while monitoring traffic near the Hawthorne Barracks. When they tried to stop the vehicle, the suspects took off and began weaving in and out of traffic. Police say the suspect got off the Sprain Brook at Exit 100 C and then crashed into several cars and a tree while on the exit ramp.

Investigators say three people were trapped inside the car, but a fourth person escaped and fled the scene on foot. The man that was able to escape dropped his jacket while running alongside the parkway. Police recovered the jacket and say they have a good idea about his identity.

The other three suspects were arrested and taken to Westchester Medical Center with minor injuries. Officials say the case will most likely be turned over to Yorktown police because that is where the alleged robbery took place.
