The Huntsville Police Department is investigating a business theft that ended in a car accident.

Police responded to a wreck at the intersection of Bob Wallace Avenue and L&N Drive

Prior to the wreck, a traffic officer on Memorial Parkway tried to pull a vehicle over for not having a tag. The vehicle got away, but later was involved in the wreck, police said.

At the wreck, officers noticed a large amount of merchandise in the vehicle. Home Depot representatives responded to the scene of the crash and identified their stolen merchandise in the car.
