Thieves Cause Car Accident While Escaping

Two thieves were captured by police after causing one of three accidents on Interstate 64 in St. Louis, according to an article on the KMOV website.

Authorities stated that the two suspects – a man and a woman – attempted to cash a bad check at a bank in Brentwood. The teller immediately notified police, who arrived on the scene within a few minutes. The suspects fled from the bank, and drove to Interstate 64, where they drove westbound in the eastbound lanes.

After the crash, they tried to run away on foot and they ended up hiding in a storm drain, where they were captured by police. The female suspect was charged with forgery, while the male suspect was charged with resisting arrest.

As your St. Louis Car Accident Attorney, we want you to know how serious these types of crimes can be. Not only can they be dangerous for people at the scene of the crime, but when the suspects attempt to flee, the outcome can sometimes be disastrous for motorists.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident, which is a relief. Even so, if you are ever in a similar situation and you find yourself to be the victim of a car accident in St. Louis, please contact a St. Louis attorney right away. You deserve justice and your attorney will fight hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
