St. Louis Man Injures Others While Fleeing from Police

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that a St. Louis man that caused a car crash, in which police say at least two other vehicles were struck, was trying to flee police. To complicate matters, the man driving the car injured his son in this crash because his son was not in a car seat at the time of the accident. The driver had a criminal history that included drug possession and motor vehicle tampering.

The Post-Dispatch described what was likely a chaotic scene with the police who were already in pursuit, the driver, passengers, witnesses, and the tragically injured little boy. If you are struck at a time like this, you may easily become overwhelmed.
