Witness Reacts To High Speed Chase

December 23, 2011, 12:15 PM by Shawn Neisteadt

Witness Reacts To High Speed Chase
SIOUX FALLS, SD -  
Some people at a nearby gas station didn't know what was happening when they heard sirens, but saw the pursuit come to an end.

Authorities always say there's an additional element of danger whenever a pursuit comes into a city.

But witnesses who watched the chase come to an end say they didn't feel threatened.

Several people gathered outside a gas station, where the chase ended directly in front of. They could hear the sirens but had no idea what was going on.

“Heard the sirens and we saw the cops go by about five minutes before,” witness Tanner LaVallierre said. “All of the sudden we saw this car come whipping through the Crown (Casino) parking lot and get pitted by the cop, it was pretty cool.”

The suspect was taken from the scene by ambulance, a precautionary measure according to the highway patrol.

Witnesses say they're glad the pursuit came to an end without other cars getting hit, or children in the area who would be walking to school at about that time of morning.

KELOLAND News will have more on this story as information continues to become available.
