Officers from Clayton and Concord along with the Highway Patrol told neighbors that the car was stolen.

There were two women and a dog inside.

“(There was) a lot of blood,” Stoddard said. “(One woman) got carried away on a stretcher. She didn’t look to be in too good condition and the other one was completely lifeless when they brought her out of the car,” he added.

  1. Reporters: we ALWAYS want to know what happened to the animal! Put that in the story! I know it sounds cold, but I actually care more about the dog. It didn’t steal a car or choose to lead a high-speed chase, and its life was put in jeopardy by other people’s poor choices. Did the dog survive, or not?
