(Update: A spokesperson for Providence Hospital said Monday evening that the condition of Mylinda Forrester has improved from "critical" to "serious".)
A collision involving a stolen vehicle that was being chased by police sent six people to the hospital Sunday night.
Anchorage Police say that at about 11 p.m. Sunday, a patrol officer began pursuing a stolen 2005 silver Dodge sedan headed south on C Street. Police say the vehicle with five occupants ran through a red light at 15th Avenue, colliding with a Chevrolet Blazer SUV headed east on 15th.
The only occupant of the SUV, 31-year-old Mylinda Forrester, was partially ejected from her vehicle. She was transported to an Anchorage hospital with “life-altering injuries,” according to APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker.
"In the collision, the stolen vehicle remained on the roadway, remained on C Street," Parker said Monday morning. "However, the vehicle that it struck flew off of C Street, into a parking lot that is lower than C Street and 15th."
Forrester was initially listed in critical condition. A spokesperson for Providence Hospital said Monday night that her condition has been upgraded to "serious".
Anchorage police report the stolen vehicle was driven by 24-year-old Kevin Wright, a resident of Joplin, Mo. Wright and another male passenger were transported to an Anchorage hospital in critical condition.
