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.
At a press conference, Dallas police Officer Carlos Almeida declined to give further details about the chase or name the suspect, but he said the driver of the car that was hit was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.
