(KMOV) -- A man who threw a pregnant woman out of a vehicle during a high speed chase Wednesday afternoon has been charged.
The chase started in south St. Louis when a police officer tried to stop the vehicle near Interstate 55 and Bates for a traffic violation but the driver fled. The driver eventually pushed the pregnant woman out at Farlin and Cora and continued to flee from police.
The chase crossed into Illinois on Interstate 70 and ended in north city. The wild chase lasted more than an hour as the driver reached speeds of 100 miles an hour.
Police at one point tried to literally push the car off the road. The suspect passed other drivers on the shoulder of I-70 and nearly ran another driver off the road. Once he exited I-70 at Shreve, he sped down city streets.
The suspect wound up in a residential neighborhood trailing a school bus. He tried to pass the bus, but was blocked by a parked car.
He later ditched the blue Mazda he was driving, and stumbled as he ran into his residence in the 4500 block of Harris, just off West Florissant.
About a dozen police officers followed. Police surrounded the house and found Anthony Pork hiding in a closet.
He is currently being held on a $50,000 bond.
