Two Littleton officers injured in crashes during chase of car theft suspect.

Two Littleton police officers were injured early Tuesday morning in vehicle crashes involving a suspected car thief who led officers on a chase.

The incident unfolded at about 3:30 a.m. when officers responded to a report of an attempted theft at CarMax, 5858 S. Broadway, according to a news release.

Officers encountered two suspects who ran and hid between cars. A 24-year-old woman was arrested at the scene. A man fled in a Kia Optima, which was later learned to be stolen out of Denver.

The suspect fleeing in the Kia hit a marked patrol car near 191 E. Orchard Ave., police said. The fleeing driver kept going, heading west on West Littleton Boulevard. During a pursuit, an officer’s vehicle crashed into a retaining wall near 2707 W. Main St. No officers were seriously injured, and the pursuit was called off.

The suspect hit a curb at the intersection of South Santa Fe Drive and West Main Street. The Kia was inoperable, and the suspect fled on foot. Both officers were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital and released. An investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information on the incident, or on a possible suspect, is asked to call Detective Adam Alderson at 303-794-1551.
