A high-speed pursuit ended with multiple injuries in St. Louis, Missouri Thursday afternoon, with the driver reaching speeds of 118 mph. In addition, the accident occurred when two suspects had stolen a car, and while fleeing from the police, crashed into two other motorists at the intersection of St. Charles Rock Road and Lackland. In addition, the vehicle began to flee from police, as the officer, Juston Wheetley with the Missouri State Highway Patrol tried to pull them over.
Additionally, the would-be escape artists may have thought they were getting away since the officer called off the chase near Interstate 1-70 due to heavy traffic congestion just before the Blanchette Bridge. Likewise, just as the stolen vehicle was attempting to flee, nearby St. Ann officers heard the call and set out a strip of spike strips. Luckily, the strips worked and thus disabled the vehicle, yet unfortunately not soon enough to prevent the crash. The driver of the stolen vehicle was clocked at such high speeds faster than 100 mph, and it is lucky no one was killed in the accident. Four people were injured in all, including three separate vehicles.
