Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– One person is in custody after leading police on a chase that started in Christian County and ended in Springfield.

At the end of the chase, the car was smashed and had tires blown out.

Police said the driver came from Christian County and got to Springfield around 9:45 p.m., and ended up on Portland and Campbell near Bass Pro.

Police say a few cop cars were hit by the driver, but they are not aware of any injuries.

“I mean, I ain’t never seen anything like that happen around here like that, so it was definitely a little bit of excitement,” witness Marcus Triplett said. “I see him spin around. He got hit by a car trying to come back out. Then he comes barreling down the street here, almost hits like three or four cars that are sitting right here.

One cop coming from that way, and the other cop was following behind him. He got hit by both of them and it spun his car, and he went down the road about 20 feet and tried to jump out of the vehicle to run away from the police.”

Below are some photos from the scene:
