Four people were taken to the hospital when the car they were driving in crashed following a high speed chase with police just after midnight Thursday. Colorado Springs Police officers pursued the black sedan north along I-25 when the car suddenly exited at the Nevada/Tejon ramp. At some point the driver hit a curb and the car left the ground and landed in Fountain Creek.
The male driver and at least one female passenger were seen trying to run away from the accident. The driver and three passengers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The northbound ramp at Nevada was temporarily blocked by emergency vehicles but has since reopened. It's unclear whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
