A police car chase reported a car stolen during a carjacking that took place on Interstate 95 from Delray Beach to Boca Raton and ended after a crash at the side of the highway, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Delray Beach police saw the vehicle in the 2700 block of West Sunrise Boulevard and followed it, a Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman said.
The pursuit ended when the car crashed off I-95 at the exit ramp.
Police reported three critically injured in the crash and one other person was in custody, the Florida Highway Patrol official said.
The carjacking happened outside of Delray Beach and Florida Highway Patrol and other police authorities said information about the stolen car was still being gathered by investigators.
A Palm Beach Sheriff’s helicopter, police dogs, deputies with the Violence Intervention Protective Enforcement Response squad and deputies from the Deerfield Beach district helped Delray Beach police.
The major cause of the crash is still under investigation, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Alcohol or drugs may have been the main reason for the crash. Anyone with relevant information should contact Florida Highway Patrol Department.
