A stolen car crashed into the main entrance gate at the home of singer Taylor Swift, bringing an end to a police chase early Tuesday in Westerly, R.I., the AP reports.
“The singer was not home, though police do plan to ask for surveillance video from her property to help the investigation, Westerly Police Chief Shawn Lacey said Wednesday,” the AP reports. “The chase started around 1 a.m. Tuesday when a Hopkinton officer on patrol noticed the car had no license plates and tried to pull it over, Lacey told The Sun of Westerly.”
Swift has had a problem with stalkers, but Lacey said there’s nothing to indicate that the occupants of the vehicle were aware of who owned the beachfront house.
“The car failed to negotiate a 90-degree curve near Swift’s home, struck the wall outside her property and ricocheted into the main entrance gate, according to police reports,” the AP reports. “Police estimated the car, which they said was stolen in nearby Connecticut, was going about 35 mph at the time.”
The report adds: “Three of the car’s occupants — the 19-year-old driver, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy — were taken to the hospital with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. A fourth occupant, age 18, fled on foot but was tracked down just after 4 a.m. Tuesday when his brother drove from Connecticut to pick him up.”
