Deputies investigate after car stolen from Brighton crashes on Inner Loop
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says a string of car-break-ins overnight in the Fairport-Perinton area culminated into a high speed, rollover crash in downtown Rochester.
Deputies say they were investigating the car break-ins when they came upon a suspicious SUV. Deputies say the SUV sped off on Atlantic Avenue until they lost it.
Minutes later, around 1:10 a.m., a call came in for a crash on the Inner Loop near Union Street in the city. The SUV crashed into the guide rail and flipped over. The sheriff’s office says it was the same SUV and later confirmed that it was stolen from Brighton.
