A police chase in Yonkers involving a stolen vehicle ended in a violent crash, a manhunt for a trio of suspects and serious injuries for a police sergeant.

Police say officers were chasing a stolen white SUV on I-87 around 2 a.m. Tuesday when the SUV rear-ended a marked Yonkers Police unit driven by a police sergeant. Video shows the police cruiser badly damaged in the back; the sergeant who had been driving it suffered serious injuries but was expected to survive.

The SUV, which investigators say had been stolen from a dealership on Long Island, also was damaged. The three people who were believed to have been inside it fled the scene and remained on the loose as of Tuesday afternoon.

No other injuries were reported. The investigation is ongoing.
