Woman running from police crashes into mini-van

Police say woman drove away from officer just before wreck


A woman trying to run from a traffic stop slammed her car into a mini-van late Saturday night.

Police say an officer pulled the woman over at Loop 410 and Broadway just before 10:30 p.m.

But when the officer went to check the woman's license she drove off and crashed into a mini-van.

The driver of that van had to be taken to the hospital. Another adult and two children weren't injured.

Police say the woman had an outstanding warrant.

They say she'll now face more charges including evading arrest and failure to stop and render aid.
