Three male suspects are in custody after a chase with Fort Worth police resulted in a rollover car crash Wednesday, according to the Fort Worth Police Department.

At around 5 p.m. Wednesday, Fort Worth police officers observed a stolen vehicle leaving an apartment complex in the 6200 block of Granbury Cut Off Street in west Fort Worth. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver failed to yield, according to police.

The stolen vehicle traveled eastbound toward Granbury Road and an Interstate 20 service road. As the driver forced his way through traffic, he sideswiped several vehicles at an intersection causing minor damages, but no injuries, police said.

The vehicle continued to travel at a high speed and traveled eastbound on the service road, where the driver ran a red light and hit a vehicle at the intersection of the service road and Trail Lake Drive, causing it to roll over, according to police.

The person who was in the vehicle that rolled over was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

After crashing, all three occupants in the stolen vehicle fled from officers on foot, police said. Two of them ran into a nearby convenience store, where they were apprehended. The person who was driving the vehicle ran toward a nearby neighborhood and hid in a resident’s garage, according to police.

Fort Worth police’s Air One helicopter located the driver and officers were able to remove him from the garage, taking him into custody without incident.

Officers also found a handgun in the stolen vehicle, according to police.

Two men were taken to the Fort Worth City Jail and a juvenile male was transported to a juvenile detention center.

The names and charges of the adult men will be released once they have been arraigned.

“The Fort Worth Police Department continues to strive to keep our communities safe from violent criminals and their reckless and dangerous actions that put innocent people at risk,” Fort Worth police spokesperson Daniel Segura told the Star-Telegram.
