Police: 2 Hurt After OC Woman Fled From Forged Check-Cashing Attempt

ANAHEIM (CBS) — A suspected check forger was injured Tuesday after she led Anaheim police on a chase Tuesday that ended with a three-car collision as well as another woman hospitalized.

The two women were taken to hospitals with what police called moderate injuries after the roughly 11:10 a.m. collision at Broadway and Manchester Avenue, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

The suspect, whose name was not immediately available, allegedly tried to cash a forged check at a check-cashing business in the 100 block of south Brookhurst Street about 11 a.m., Dunn said.

Dunn said police arrived as the woman was leaving, and she ignored officers who tried to question her and drove off.

Officers went after the woman, and a law enforcement officer in a helicopter helped keep tabs on her as she drove on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway.

The suspect exited on Harbor Boulevard and went west on Ball Road and north on Manchester Avenue, colliding with two other vehicles at Broadway, Dunn said.

The suspect and a woman from one of the other two cars were taken to hospitals, Dunn said. A man driving the other car was treated at the scene and released, he said.
