COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Both Columbia Police and Richland Co. Sheriff's Department are on the scene of a crash that started as a pursuit of a stolen vehicle.

Law enforcement officers initially began investigating the theft of a vehicle that went from Richland County Sheriff's jurisdiction into CPD's.

The pursuit began with law enforcement spotting the stolen car and ended at North Main and Sunset Drive in Columbia after the vehicle did not stop for CPD officers on Farrow Road. The car crashed into three different cars on North Main and Sunset.

At least one person was taken to the hospital, but they are expected to be OK.

Lt. Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department says two people have been detained and another person is being sought by law enforcement. The names of the suspects have not been released and charges are forthcoming.

A woman who lives near the scene says a suspect ran through her home after the collision.

CPD is leading the investigation at this time.
