Driver of black Mustang taken into custody following brief pursuit in Broward County
Deputies took a driver into custody after a short pursuit ended with a crash in Fort Lauderdale on Monday afternoon.
Members of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Viper Task Force tried to stop a car matching the description of a homicide suspect vehicle out of Orlando when authorities said the driver sped away.
That driver, who was behind the wheel of a black mustang, then crashed into an unmarked BSO cruiser near Davie Boulevard and Southwest 4th Avenue.
Authorities said the driver then tried running away on foot.
He was taken custody a short time later, before being taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
A female passenger was also taken into custody, authorities said.
No deputies were injured in the crash.
