One man suffered serious leg injuries and was airlifted to a hospital trauma center. Three others and the driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash happened at about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday on Route 47 in the Rio Grande section of Middle Township, just west of Wildwood.
It all began in Wildwood when an officer tried to stop a 2003 Nissan Altima that was being driven by 36-year-old Anthony Friel of the 200 block of Matthews Avenue in the Villas section of Lower Township.
Friel initially stopped, police said, but then took off at a high rate of speed.
Friel was then seen speeding westbound on Rio Grande Boulevard by a Middle Township Police patrol officer.
However, after he was spotted, police say Friel crashed at Route 47 South and 5th Avenue. Police say the Nissan hit a truck driving northbound on Route 47, then slammed into the bus stop.
Three people were airlifted to AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center- City Division. Two other individuals are being treated at Cape Regional Medical Center.
After the crash, police say Friel fled on foot, but was soon caught by authorities.
