A police chase Thursday ended with a driver plowing her car into a coffee shack in South Anchorage and causing an estimated $10,000 in damage.
The driver, later identified as Rachel Hawkins, 41, was transported to a hospital to be treated for what appeared to be a broken wrist, police said. Nobody else was injured.
Police say they first tried to stop Hawkins' car at 13th Avenue and Gambell Street at about 4:20 a.m.
The driver of the silver 2000 Ford Focus refused to stop and sped off south on the Seward Highway, then exited heading west on 36th Avenue, police said.
The vehicle turned south on the Old Seward Highway, ran the red light at the intersection of Tudor Road and jumped the curb south of Dowling Road, launching it into the Common Grounds Coffee stand, police said.
The stand was torn from its foundation, its contents scattered, police Lt. Dave Parker said. Nobody was inside the stand at the time, he said.
"She really just made a mess of that coffee stand" Parker said.
