Police pursuit leads to crash in northeast Charlotte

A police pursuit lead to a wreck early Wednesday morning in northeast Charlotte, according to CMPD. 

Police said around 2:30 a.m. a Chrysler 300 was reportedly stolen at gunpoint. The carjacking occurred on Tom Hunter near Sugar Creek Road. 

The victim told officers that two suspects robbed him and one was armed with a gun. The man was not injured during the robbery, police said. 

A short time later at 3:54 a.m., officers spotted the Chrysler with two people inside on N. Tryon at Sugar Creek Road. CMPD officers attempted to pull the vehicle over and the vehicle refused to stop, continuing onto Munsee Street. The pursuit lasted about one minute, police said. 

The stolen vehicle almost immediately crashed and flipped over on Yuma Street as it attempted to flee from officers, CMPD said. The two people inside, a man and woman, were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. A stolen handgun was also recovered inside the vehicle. 

This remains an open and ongoing investigation.
