(KMOV)-- The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating an overnight chase that started in St. Charles.
An officer from the highway patrol attempted to stop a car in the area when the suspect’s vehicle fled. The officer pursued.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says when the officer realized the suspect’s vehicle was driving erratically, he ended the pursuit and notified agencies in the direction the suspect was headed about the situation.
Highway patrol reports St. Ann and Edmundson police then picked up the pursuit just before the suspect’s vehicle crashed on I-70 near Lambert Airport.
Officials say one person ran from the car, and he was shot by a St. Ann police officer.
