WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) — A woman speeding away from a traffic stop struck and injured two Adams County sheriff’s deputies before leading authorities on a chase that hurt another driver.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Paul Gregory tells KMGH-TV ( ) that the two deputies and the person behind the wheel of a car hit by the fleeing woman have been taken to a hospital. Their conditions aren’t immediately available.

Authorities pursued the vehicle through Denver and Westminster. The chase ended when the woman ran a red light and struck another vehicle. She was apprehended.
