NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A possible police chase ended in a high-speed crash, leaving four people injured at the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway and Downman Road in New Orleans East on Tues., June 14.

Police say that three vehicles were involved in the wreck and the injured were transported to the hospital for treatment. The extent of their injuries is unknown.

The dramatic scene was captured on surveillance video from a business in the area of the intersection. In the video, a blue car being tailed by an NOPD unit speeds through a red light into an intersection, careening into the passenger’s side of a white truck. The truck flips over onto its hood, smashing the front end of a third car, and coming to rest on its passenger side door. Someone can be seen crawling out of the wrecked truck.

The NOPD’s Public Integrity Bureau is investigating to ensure officers followed proper protocol.
