BURLINGTON, N.C. — Two people are in the hospital following a crash in Burlington on Saturday, according to a Burlington Police Department news release.

Around 12:59 a.m., officers with the BPD, Burlington Fire Department and Alamance County EMS responded to the Food Lion on 2208 N. Church St. when they were told about a motor vehicle crash with injuries in the 100 block of N. Sellars Mill Rd.

When they arrived, officers found a 2011 Dodge Challenger that had hit a tree, overturned and came to rest off the road.

The driver was ejected from the vehicle.

The passenger was also critically injured in the crash.

This was the same vehicle that drove off minutes earlier from a Graham officer who was responding to a shots fired call in the area of Harden Street at Elm Street, police say.

The two people in the car were believed to the be the only people in the car at the time, and no other people were hurt in the crash.

They were both taken to a local hospital for treatment by Alamance County EMS where they are listed in critical condition.
