Bam!!

And not in an Emeril sort of way.Dsc_0015 

This is how a high speed chase ended in JP this morning.  The blue SUV on the left started the chain reaction. 

I was sitting on the couch, when I heard it.  Given the weather and road conditions, I wasn’t surprised that there was an accident.  I grabbed the phone to call the cops and looked out the window so IDsc_0004_2 could describe the scene.  I was surprised to see officers with guns drawn approaching the blue SUV.  Must have been 11 cop cars.  Clearly they were chasing the blue SUV guy.  A pedestrian witness said they were flying down the street. The dump truck guys saw him coming and tried to get out of the way.

Dsc_0005_3 A total of eight cars were involved (five of them were parked) and four individuals were taken to the hospital.  Ooops, make that 9 cars – a police car up the street was also damaged.  Luckily, the innocent bystanders were not badly hurt. 

Can’t say the same for the suspect driver. Dsc_0002

ETA: Details on the crash can be found on the BPD blog
