Car chase in Chesterfield ends with van flipping off Chippenham ramp

Posted: Updated:
CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A man is recovering in the hospital after fleeing Chesterfield Police and flipping his van on a Chippenham off-ramp.

According to police, the male suspect was being pulled over for speeding at around 11:30 p.m. on Chippenham south near the Hull Street exit. He decided instead to take off, and about three minutes later flipped his van onto a fence and into some trees on the East Iron Bridge Road exit.

That Iron Bridge Road exit was closed for a few hours while police investigated and a tow truck removed the vehicle. 

The suspect was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Charges are currently pending.
