2 children critically hurt in crash after police chase
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two children are critically injured after a police chase ended in a crash near Lambert Airport in St. Louis.
The crash happened around 10 a.m. Tuesday on Lambert International Boulevard. Police say a Normandy, Missouri, officer saw an SUV commit a moving violation on Interstate 70 and realized it matched the description of an SUV taken during an armed robbery that occurred hours earlier.
The officer gave chase and the SUV exited at the airport, striking a car containing two women and two children.
A 9-year-old is in critical and unstable condition. A 5-year-old is in critical but stable condition. The women are hospitalized with undisclosed injuries.
The 16-year-old SUV driver and two 15-year-old passengers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
