Two people had to be extricated and transported to the hospital after authorities say a car fled from officers at a high rate of speed and rolled over in Gurnee Sunday evening.
Gurnee police officers were on patrol around 8:50 p.m. Sunday near Old Grand Avenue and Depot Road.
A white Chevrolet sedan was witnessed to be traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Old Grand Avenue, police said.
The vehicle turned northbound on Depot Road and officers attempted to make a traffic stop by activating their emergency lights.
The Chevrolet accelerated and was no longer visible to officers as they continued northbound on Depot Road.
Officers did not further pursue the vehicle and turned off their emergency lights, police said.
The officers continued northbound on Depot Road and noticed the white Chevrolet had crashed.
The vehicle was lying on its side against a commercial building at 1300 Skokie Highway in Gurnee.
The Gurnee Fire Department responded and began extricating two occupants from the vehicle.
A 27-year-old Winthrop Harbor woman and a 26-year-old North Chicago man were extricated from the car.
The woman was transported to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan and the man was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
The two suffered injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening, police said.
Investigators with the Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) responded to the scene and assisted with the crash investigation.
The incident remains under investigation by the Gurnee Police Department and MCAT.
