Charges pending after fleeing suspect hits 3 vehicles

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Police say charges are pending against a suspect who fled from officers and hit three other vehicles near downtown Montgomery Friday afternoon.

According to Sgt. David Hicks, officers were attempting to stop a suspicious vehicle on South McDonough Street when a chase began.

As the suspect fled through the intersection at E. South Street, it hit a vehicle. That vehicle ended up inside M&M Electric. After hitting the first vehicle, the suspect vehicle then hit two parked cars.

Hicks said the suspect is seeking medical treatment for injuries sustained in the crash, but that charges will be confirmed once they’ve been released from the hospital. Hicks said the driver of the first vehicle was also taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

WSFA 12 News asked MPD whether the driver of the vehicle matched a lookout or what crime the driver allegedly committed, but they weren’t at liberty to say.
