(KMOV.com) – Three children were hurt after the driver of the car they were in crashed while fleeing police in north St. Louis Tuesday afternoon.

Berkeley police received a call Tuesday afternoon about a disturbance along the side of Interstate 170. Officers arrived to find a man and woman arguing. As officers approached the man drove away and a chase began.

Berkeley officers eventually gave up on the chase, which ended a short time later after the driver crashed on I-70 and Goodfellow.

Police say the driver then ran away, leaving three boys, ages 6, 2, and 1, in the car.

The children were not seriously hurt and are in the care of relatives.
