A wanted woman trying to evade police hit seven police vehicles, injuring multiple officers, and eventually crashed into a pole Sunday.
Hannah Casperson, 25, of Brookfield has been wanted by the Wolcott Police Department for allegedly assisting her boyfriend in the vandalization of 41 vehicles. While her boyfriend, Thomas Crawford, was caught by police, Casperson fled in a Hummer.
Sunday morning around 8:43 a.m., police received a tip about Casperson’s location. Waterbury police arrived at the location and found Casperson’s vehicle with her inside, WTNH reports. They attempted to make contact with her as she sat in the driver’s seat of the Hummer, but she decided to evade, they said.
Casperson reportedly accelerated her Hummer, smashing a police vehicle and hitting another before driving onto the interstate.
Multiple police officers pursued in their vehicles.
The Monroe Police Chief said seven police vehicles were hit during the chase. Seven officers from the Waterbury Police Department were transported to the hospital for treatment, where they were all listed in stable condition.
