Suspected Bank Robber Plows Into Car During High-Speed Chase in Dallas

A tan SUV barreled through the intersection at Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue in Dallas just before 11 a.m. Wednesday, smashing the front end of a black crossover vehicle before flipping onto its roof. The driver of the SUV, who was fleeing from a small fleet of Dallas Police Department vehicles, got out of the overturned car and ran. Police caught and arrested him after a brief pursuit.

The chase began when DPD received a robbery call at 10:44 a.m. from a Bank of America branch on Gaston Avenue in Lakewood. Shortly after officers arrived at the bank, they spotted the suspect's vehicle nearby and gave chase.
