LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A 33-year-old woman was taken into custody and transported to the hospital after a short police pursuit ended in a crash.

Shortly after Noon on Wednesday, a Lubbock Police Officer was flagged down in the area of 19th Street and Crickets Avenue about a hit-and-run. An SUV crashed into a vehicle that had two females and a child inside. The child had minor injuries and was checked out by EMS.

The SUV crashed after running a stop sign near 50th and Avenue P. The victim in the other vehicle involved was taken to the hospital by private vehicle.

The driver of the SUV was taken into custody. 

Accident investigators were called to the scene and expect to be wrapped up around 5 p.m.
