A female driver was injured when a stolen van pursued by police crashed into her car in Endwell.
The accident on Country Club Road near Stark Avenue happened shortly after 2:30 p.m. Monday.
A person familiar with the incident said the van was taken from its owner in Endicott minutes earlier.
The man who owned the truck was injured in what has been described as a hit and run on Watson Boulevard just west of McKinley Avenue. A witness said the man suffered a serious injury to his leg.
A state soldier spotted the stolen vehicle and attempted to remove it, but the driver did not stop.
The truck – a white Ram pickup – was heading east on Country Club Road when it crashed into a blue Chevrolet compact sedan. The woman driving the car was injured.
The man driving the stolen vehicle – believed to be around 20 years old – fled on foot after the crash. He was reportedly apprehended by the police shortly thereafter.
