JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — One person was rushed to the hospital Wednesday afternoon after an incident, near the intersection of Philips Highway and University Boulevard.

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department said one person was taken to the hospital with injuries. Officials say the incident involves a flipped car.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says patrol units distributed a BOLO for a vehicle.  

Police say officers received credible intelligence of the vehicle being sighted and responded to the area of University Boulevard and Philips Highway. 

Upon arrival, one of the detectives observed the vehicle in the area, police say.

As he approached the vehicle, the driver began accelerating in attempts to flee the scene, police say. In order to prevent a high speed pursuit, police say a “PIT Maneuver” was performed on the vehicle. 

Police say they were able to immobilize the vehicle, allowing for the two occupants to be quickly detained.  

The driver received minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons, police say.
