Five people were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital following a police chase and crash Saturday night.
Police say it started with a traffic stop by an Operation Impact patrol around 11:20 PM near Hudson Ave. and Roycroft Drive.
Troopers say they attempted to pull over a vehicle for a tail light out and illegally tinted windows, and that's when the driver took off. After chasing the vehicle four or five blocks, the car crashed into a vehicle at the corner of Alphonse and North Streets. The car then rolled over and hit a house. The car it hit, proceeded down the street and hit another car.
"They tried to stay within sight of the vehicle. The troopers are responsible for taking a variety of factors into account, but given the brevity of the chase, there really wasn't an opportunity for the trooper to even call the chase off before the accident occurred," explained Lt. Jon Lupo, NYS Police.
Police say a loaded gun and drugs were found int eh car they were attempting to stop. The driver is facing a number of charges.
