GULFPORT, Fla. (AP) - Gulfport police are reviewing a policy on chases after a pursuit ended with a stolen car crashing into a bus in St. Petersburg.
Police Chief Robert Vincent says his agency will examine portions of the policy relating to pursuing vehicles into nearby cities. That's what happened Monday when an officer tried to stop a car in Gulfport. The pursuit ended 14 minutes later when the vehicle crashed into a transit bus, and then plowed into a house.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/Mi5mTu ) reports the car's driver and a passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The driver's 2-year-old son was also injured.
Gulfport currently requires officers to notify local police when a pursuit enters their jurisdiction. The chief says that may not be enough.
