Running away from a police patrol in her car, a woman and two girls were injured in a crash, as Lapeer County Police reported.
St. Clair County contacted County’s emergency number about 1:45 a.m. on August 14. They said that an intoxicated woman had been noticed at the gas station in Capac, which is east of Imlay City.
She was driving a gray 2009 Pontiac G6, with her two daughters in the vehicle.
A female driver inquired about the route to Bad Axe, left the station, and proceeded west on Interstate 69, according to the police.
Sheriff’s deputy observed the mentioned car at 1:58 a.m. near I-69 and M-53 in Imlay City. He immediately advanced and tried to stop this vehicle.
But the reckless driver sped away 80mph north on M-53 through the city. He started a pursuit that ended only two miles later because of the car’s speed causing danger to two children in it.
At 2:02 a.m., the car was located on the northwest corner of the M-53 and Bowers road. Evidently, the driver couldn’t manage to handle the curved way.
The 40-year-old woman and her two girls, ages seven and ten, were outside the car. They suffered injuries from the crash.
Due to the quick reaction of Lapeer Co. EMS, all three were transferred to McLaren Lapeer to receive medical care.
After being examined, the older girl was transported by helicopter to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Her condition was reported as severe but stable. The younger one was released after the treatment.
The mother was withheld in the hospital. Her wounds were not severe.
It was discovered later that the mother and young girls were headed to Caseville for the Cheeseburger Festival.
The car had no proper registration plates and also, no insurance, added the police. Her driver’s license was under suspension.
