Police chase ends in rollover crash on I-10 south of Phoenix; driver arrested
PHOENIX - A police chase involving a suspected stolen car ended in a crash on Dec. 21 along Interstate 10 south of Phoenix.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the incident began when troopers attempted to stop a stolen car along the eastbound lanes at milepost 188. The driver refused to stop and the chase began.
SkyFOX video showed the suspect vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and dodging other cars as DPS troopers tried stopping the vehicle several times.
The chase came to an end when the vehicle crashed and rolled over on the westbound side of the interstate at milepost 172.
"Troopers were about to perform a PIT maneuver when the suspect driver lost control causing the vehicle to roll," DPS said.
Duncan Shepard, a 20-year-old Mesa man, was arrested in connection to a chase that ended in a rollover crash south of Phoenix on Dec. 21.
Two suspects were seen getting out of the car before surrendering to police. They appeared to be uninjured.
The right lane was blocked before Riggs Road for some time due to the investigation.
Hours after the incident, DPS officials identified the driver involved in the pursuit as 20-year-old Duncan Shepard of Mesa.
Shepard, according to officials, was booked into the Pinal County Jail on a number of alleged criminal offenses, including theft, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, criminal damage, unlawful flight, and possession of marijuana.
