BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) - Two people were hospitalized after a stolen car chase in Bettendorf Friday night.

According to Bettendorf police, at around 9:20 p.m. Friday, an officer tried to stop a white Dodge Caravan for traffic charges. Officers say the van failed to stop and a short chase began.

Police say the van began driving recklessly, and ran a stop sign at the intersection of 18th Street and Lincoln Road. Officers then stopped the chase at that point.

That’s when officers say the minivan driver crossed the center line and ran into a Red Chrysler Town and Country head-on near the 1700 block of Lincoln Road.
