ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- One man was charged Wednesday in connection to the head-on collision that happened Tuesday night involving two officers from the St. Louis Police Department.

The collision happened around 8 p.m. at Gilmore and West Florissant Ave. in north St. Louis after officers located a vehicle matching the description of a car wanted for shots fired. The suspect vehicle was traveling westbound on West Florissant and lost control, striking another police car that was responding to help.

The driver of the suspect vehicle, 20-year-old Terrion Robinson of the 1400 block of Widefield, got out of the car and fled the scene on foot. Police chased Robinson and found him hiding under a porch in the 5500 block of Robin.

Robinson refused to come out and resisted arrest by throwing debris at the officer, and also hitting and punching him, officials say. Robinson was eventually taken into custody.

The second suspect was injured as a result of the accident, but did not attempt to flee from the suspect vehicle. The 27-year-old is still in the hospital. He has not been charged.

Police say the officers and two suspects were transported to Barnes-Jewish Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Robinson was charged with three counts of second degree assault, and other charges in connection to the crime. His bond was set $25,000.

Both officers have been released from the hospital.
