WESTMINSTER — A woman speeding away from a traffic stop struck and injured two Adams County sheriff's deputies before leading authorities on a chase that hurt another driver.

Sheriff's Sgt. Paul Gregory tells KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/1lc1eGh ) that the two deputies and the person behind the wheel of a car hit by the fleeing woman have been taken to a hospital. Their conditions aren't immediately available.

Gregory says two women got out of the car when authorities stopped it in Adams County at 11:40 a.m. Sunday for a traffic infraction. But one of them hopped back in and fled, hitting the deputies.

Authorities pursued the vehicle through Denver and Westminster. The chase ended when the woman ran a red light and struck another vehicle. She was apprehended.
