Car chase in Montgomery County after hit-and-run

A Montgomery County car chase involving several police departments followed a hit-and-run incident on the Capital Beltway Saturday night, authorities said.

State police said a disabled vehicle was struck in the rear while halted on the inner loop near River Road. The vehicle that hit the car left the scene, but a witness called police, and a chase ensued, police said.

Police said the chase moved onto Interstate 270 before a vehicle was stopped and a man taken into custody.

The occupant of the disabled car was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, police said.
