WARREN — A series of events that began with a police chase after a dispatch run to an attempted break-in in Warren ended with a crash in Detroit that left a 38-year-old woman in critical condition late March 19.

According to Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer, a total of three people were transported to the hospital after a black Range Rover that fled from the scene of an investigation crashed into a green Dodge SUV on Hoover Street at Bringard Drive, just south of Eight Mile Road, shortly after 11:30 p.m.

Dwyer said the driver of the Range Rover remained at large March 20. The driver of the Dodge reportedly remained hospitalized, while two passengers in the suspect vehicle — a 42-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman — were in stable condition.

Warren officers were dispatched to a home in the 25300 block of Industrial Highway to investigate an attempted breaking and entering complaint. The Range Rover was listed as the suspect vehicle and was reportedly parked in the driveway.

“When the officers responded to the residence, they observed the Range Rover in the driveway, which fled over the grass onto southbound Schoenherr,” Dwyer said. “The officers pursued the suspect vehicle southbound on Schoenherr to Groesbeck, through Nine Mile Road. The officers then, because of the high speeds, terminated the pursuit.”

Dwyer said officers proceeded to a sharp bend in the road just south of Eight Mile, where M-97 changes from Groesbeck Highway to Hoover Street and turns due south.

“Upon arrival, they found there was a two-car traffic crash at Hoover and Bringard,” Dwyer said.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information about the driver or the incident can reach Warren detectives at (586) 574-4810.
