    The driver of the second vehicle was also injured and is currently still under medical care.

    The fleeing vehicle continued fleeing and once in the area of the 400 block of Highland Ave, the vehicle struck another vehicle.

    However, that didn’t stop him. He continued to travel south on Highland Avenue striking a second vehicle that was stopped at a stop sign and a third vehicle immediately following that.

    The suspect then exited his vehicle and fled on foot.
