NORTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

A suspect in a multi-state police chase that ended in a crash in midtown St. Louis Wednesday night has been charged.

Keontae Henderson, 21, is charged with first-degree tampering, felony fleeing and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police said they were chasing Henderson, who was wanted in a carjacking that happened in the 5000 block of Wren in North City on Tuesday. Police said three armed suspects stole the car from a 55-year-old woman.

The chase began near the intersection of Tucker and Cass, went into Illinois twice and then back over to Missouri over the Chain of Rocks Bridge, dodging and weaving on Interstate 70 and going the wrong way on city streets. The suspect drove south on Riverview, into downtown St. Louis, where he eventually crashed on Market by Compton near Harris-Stowe.

During the chase, he allegedly got into two accidents.

Speeds during the chase reached more than 110mph, according to police.

The suspect was driving on 2 rims at the end of the chase. 

He was taken into custody at the end of the chase.

He is being held on a $250,000 cash-only bond.
