Police find missing person after car crashes into the Chickahominy River


Two people are in critical condition after a car led police on a chase, then overturned in the Chickahominy River in Henrico.

Henrico Police say they tried to pull over a car that was driving erratically on Williamsburg Road at Elko Road early Tuesday morning. After a brief conversation with police, officers say the driver sped off. Officers say the car had two female passengers and a male driver.

Police later found the car overturned near the intersection of White Oak and East Williamsburg roads. Henrico Police and fire responded and found two women inside the car. Both were taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police, with the help of the fire department, searched for the male driver who was not found inside the car. He was found about a mile away from the crash site and taken to the hospital to be treated for exposure.

The crash remains under investigation. No word on what, if any charges are pending.
