SANFORD, FL – Volusia County deputies arrested a pair of suspects in a Sanford carjacking Friday after they fled a traffic stop, crashed into a family’s minivan and took off running until they were spotted by a resident in the area who called 911.
The incident began around 3:30 p.m. on State Road 415 in Osteen, where a deputy attempted a traffic stop on a gray Dodge Charger traveling 76 mph in a 45 mph zone. When the deputy activated his lights, the Charger sped up and fled out of sight. The deputy radioed in the fleeing vehicle and backed off.
Minutes later, the deputy arrived at SR 415 and Fort Smith Boulevard to find the Charger had crashed into a Toyota minivan, causing the minivan to roll on its side with two adults and a 2-year-old child inside. Thankfully, all three occupants were alert and reported only minor injuries.
The occupants of the Charger were gone, and witnesses indicated they ran north. Left behind on the front passenger seat of the Charger was an AR-15-style rifle.
