Police have not yet said what prompted the pursuit, which began in Mecklenburg County and traveled through three counties. The pursuit ended when the Altima crashed in the northbound lanes of Interstate 85 near the 57-mile marker in Dinwiddie.
The vehicle was traveling north at an excessive speed when it struck a 2009 Dodge Charger on the right passenger side, police said. The impact caused the Nissan to run off the right side of the interstate. It then came back into the northbound lanes and struck a 2013 Chevrolet Impala in the rear.
Both vehicles were driven by law enforcement officers.
Angelica Guzman, 26, of North Chesterfield, was driving. Her car caught on fire when it came to a stop. She was not injured.
The South Hill Police Officer driving the Chevrolet Impala and the Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Deputy driving the Dodge Charger were not injured when their vehicles were struck.
Two counts of attempted capital murder of a police officer have been filed against Guzman.
