Crash on I-4 after chase
POLK COUNTY, Fla. -

Four men were arrested early Tuesday after a two county chase forced deputies to shutdown Interstate 4.

Polk County deputies said the four men were suspected of robbing a woman in Osceola County, then took off from deputies when they were spotted.

The chase ended near Champions Gate when the beige minivan crashed on Ronald Reagan Parkway, which is near I-4.

The four men inside the minivan then ran across the interstate in an attempt to avoid capture, according to deputies.

Deputies shutdown the interstate while K-9s tracked the culprits into a wooded area near the roadway.

At least one man was bitten during capture, all four were found and placed under arrest.
