Two people were taken to a hospital after a driver refused to stop for Henrico County police, causing a crash that led to parts of Azalea Avenue being closed near Interstate 95 during Thursday’s evening commute, authorities said.

About 3:05 p.m., an officer attempted to stop a vehicle, police said. The vehicle’s driver did not stop, and the vehicle struck several vehicles on Azalea Avenue near Chamberlayne Road.

Two people received non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

All westbound lanes of Azalea Avenue were temporarily closed from Old Brook Road to Chamberlayne, and eastbound Azalea was reduced to one lane, according to Henrico police, who investigated the crash along with Richmond police.
