Three arrested after long car chase


St. Louis – Three suspects who allegedly took a woman's car at gunpoint are now in police custody after a wild chase Tuesday night.

The chase began about 7:30 p.m. in north St. Louis County when officers saw a car that had been carjacked earlier in the evening. Officers chased the car into the city.

Eventually, more than a dozen police officers were involved in the chase.

A city police car and a county police car collided near downtown as they pursued the stolen car. No one was hurt in the accident.

The fleeing vehicle eventually stopped after police put spikes in the street. The suspects range in age from 17 to 21.
