According to the Patch, 25-year-old Hannah Casperson wrecked a white Hummer on Sunday, capping a lengthy police chase.
The report states the Casperson was wanted in connection with vehicle burglaries in Wolcott, and her white Hummer was spotted by law enforcement on Sunday in parking lot in Wolcott. Authorities say Casperson took off, and police were forced to give chase. Cops say the chase spanned 25 miles and ended after Casperson crashed into a utility pole on Wheeler Road and Route 111 in Monroe.
The incident lit up social media on Sunday, with many people claiming to have seen at least a portion of the chase, or the wreck. I was able to track down a few photos taken at the scene of the accident with the help of Kelley Hangos-Carrano. Kelley connected me with Leanne McElvoy and Ariel Boucher. Boucher took the photo below.
And Leanne McElvoy took the following photos.
According to NBC Connecticut, Hannah Casperson is from Brookfield, CT. She was taken into custody after the car wreck and faces multiple charges in connection to the Sunday incident, on top the warrants that prompted the chase.
Casperson reportedly struck 7 police vehicles during the chase and officers did sustain non life-threatening injuries. Casperson's boyfriend Thomas Crawford was arrested and taken into custody prior to the chase. Police say he's wanted as an accomplice to Casperson in the alleged car break-ins. Multiple police officers were injured and treated at a nearby hospital, as was Casperson.
