The overnight ordeal began when a woman messaged a relative, requesting 911 be called because she was in danger and in a car with three possibly armed men, police said.

The relative then phoned 911, providing a description of their black BMW.

Police believe to ordeal began in Staten Island at Henderson Avenue and Broadway.

The vehicle was later spotted heading toward Brooklyn on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, and a pursuit was initiated.

The chase ended at 65th Street and 10th Avenue in Dyker Heights when the BMW crashed into a woman’s Nissan Ultima.
