Charlotte, NC (November 19, 2020) – Around 9:55 p.m. on Wednesday night, November 17, a child and numerous other victims were injured in a Charlotte car crash.
Police were searching for a 27-year-old suspect who was wanted for prescription fraud, assault on police officers, and more. On Wednesday night, police spotted the suspect driving his Camry in the inbound lanes of NC-16 around the I-85 area. Police tried to pull him over but he would not stop, which led to a pursuit.
About a minute into the pursuit, the suspect crashed his Camry into two other vehicles. One of these vehicles was a Mitsubishi Gallant.
Each person inside the Gallant was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The fourth victim was identified as a 3-year-old girl, who was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries. Paramedics have said that she is currently fighting for her life.
The Camry caught on fire immediately following the crash. The suspect was saved from his vehicle and taken to the hospital with serious injuries. He will be served with a variety of charges when he recovers.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
