A short vehicle pursuit in Murfreesboro involving a pink 1987 Chevrolet Caprice ended a couple of minutes after police called off the pursuit. The car in question actually ran into a small tree on Hazelwood Street at the entrance of Ashwood Cove Apartments Monday evening around 5:30. The accident did not occur during the pursuit, but after authorities called it off.
As police pulled up to the accident scene, a black male was seen getting out of the pink ride and running between apartment buildings. The subject got away so police ran the tag. The plate came back to a different car. That was when police ran the VIN number. A witness on the scene told officers the person who ran was someone different from who the VIN number returned to.
The pink Caprice was towed away and the driver has yet to be found. No word on why he was running from police.
