You Might Want To Look For Another Urgent Care Today

Posted By on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 9:30 AM

The area around the east side of Ajo Way and Interstate 19 is a little congested this morning, what with all the Pima County Sheriff's Office vehicles surrounding an urgent care facility with some ... minor damage to its back wall, compliments of an SUV crashing into it during a high-speed chase.

According to PCSO, it all started a little after 2 a.m. when deputies were called to a home on the southwest side in response to a home invasion. Several suspects were later spotted in a white Jeep Cherokee, and after the vehicle failed to stop for deputies it lead them on a chase down Valencia, then onto I-19 and eventually the northbound Ajo exit. It was at that point when the SUV lost control, went over the median and hurtled down a hill and crashed into the back of the urgent care building.

Two people in the SUV were killed, two others were hospitalized, PCSO said.
