Multiple people were brought to the hospital Saturday afternoon following a crash on Interstate 494. The cause of the crash?  A suspect fled from police, Bloomington police said.

Officers stopped a vehicle on Nicollet Avenue at 84th Street around 12:30 p.m. Initially, the driver gave the officer his driver’s license. Then, the officer saw what appeared to be drugs inside the vehicle. Also, the driver held up a baggie that had suspected drugs in it, police said.

After realizing what he had done, the driver sped off with officers in pursuit. The pursuit was quickly terminated due to the amount of traffic in the area. Also, the officers already knew the driver’s identity, according to police.

A short time later, officers learned that the vehicle had crashed on I-494. The driver ran from the crash. Unfortunately, multiple people were brought to the hospital.

Traffic cameras showed the driver running toward a nearby hotel, where he was found hiding under a stairwell and arrested. Inside the car, police found a large amount of narcotics, a locked gun box and stacks of cash.
