CARY, N.C. — Two people went to a hospital early Tuesday after a police chase ended in a wreck.

Investigators say Apex police tried to pull the car over under suspicion of DWI. The vehicle took off and police followed. Wake County deputies then took over the chase.

Around 1 a.m., the driver lost control of the car on Cary Parkway near Evans Road. The car hit a light pole, went airborne and veered down an embankment.

The two people in the car were taken to WakeMed with non-life threatening injuries.

According to Cary Police, Mirgol Kaveshnikova, a Richmond, Va., woman was driving. Her passenger was identified as Edwin Smith of Durham.

There was no word on charges.
