WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — Virginia State Police say seven young people were injured when a minivan leading police on a high-speed pursuit crashed on an Interstate 95 exit ramp in Prince William County.

Police say Fort Belvoir police tried to stop the Toyota Sienna, which was driving erratically, on the base around 2 a.m. Tuesday, but the driver refused to stop. Police say the van with passengers in their teens and 20s was traveling around 100 mph on southbound I-95 when the driver tried to take the exit for Dale Boulevard in Woodbridge and lost control.

That's when police say the van skidded off the road, hit a guardrail and overturned, ejecting four passengers. Police say all seven people in the van were flown to nearby hospitals and two have life-threatening injuries.
