Four people were taken to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash in the town of Perinton, which started as an attempted traffic stop in the town of Macedon.
The crash happened around 3:45 p.m. on Route 31 near Blackwatch Trail.
Police say that one of the vehicles involved in the crash was being pursued by Macedon Police in connection to a larceny investigation at the Macedon Tractor Supply store.

Anthony Loquasto, 34, of Rochester was identified as the driver. A 31-year-old male passenger was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with injuries along with the 34-year-old driver.
The drivers of the other two vehicles involved in the wreck were also transported to the hospital for evaluation.
