Morrow police chase turns into dangerous wreck, police say

A police chase in Morrow ended in a dangerous car crash when police say a person driving a stolen car tried to escape officers. 

The Morrow Police Department said shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday officers tried to stop an allegedly stolen vehicle on Morrow Road near Bob White Circle. 

Instead of stopping, the driver of the 2018 Dodge Journey tried to drive away and outrun police, officials said. 

Police said the car crashed trying to pass another car on the wrong side of the road. During the attempt, the driver struck a 2016 Hyundai Elantra head-on.

Morrow Police Chief David Snively said a suspect and two people inside the Elantra were hospitalized. Two people have serious injuries but are expected to survive. The driver of the Elantra was rushed to Atlanta Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. 

Police arrested three suspects, who each face multiple felony charges. 

Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident portion of the incident.
