Car Chase Ends In Traffic-Halting Wreck

  • Recap according to police Captain Roy Bassett: Police tried to stop the driver in the white Lincoln for reckless driving before he sped away. The officer followed the suspect a few blocks down 82nd, through a neighborhood, and back down 82nd. He clipped a white car before swerving into other traffic, hitting a beige car with an older female driver, and finally hitting a van.The officer decided on his own to end the pursuit before the driver reached 82nd & Indiana. After the suspect is checked out at UMC for minor injuries, he will be released into the custody of police. He will most likely be charged with aggravated assault with a motor vehicle unless drugs and alcohol were involved. The other two people taken to the hospital are being treated for minor injuries, however, one is older in age so the medical team is keeping a close watch on her.No serious injuries have been reported.
