Three people and a dog were seriously injured Sunday when a vehicle that had been pursued by police in connection to a shoplifting incident crashed head on into another vehicle near Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
Foxboro police responded to a call around noon for a report of shoplifting at a CVS Pharmacy, located at 72 Washington Street inside Patriot Place. Police were given a description of two suspects, along with their vehicle, which was identified as a blue Chrysler Minivan.
An officer saw the minivan pass him in the opposite direction on North Street shortly after the call came in. When he turned his cruiser around, the minivan took off speeding, according to police, causing the officer to lose sight of the suspects’ vehicle.
