ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A bi-state police chase ended with a crash in north St. Louis overnight.

Officers from Brooklyn, Illinois pursued a suspect vehicle across state lines, where it crashed on Shreve near Bellefontaine Cemetery shortly before midnight.

After crashing, the suspect attempted to run from officers but was eventually taken into custody.

The van the suspect crashed into is used by a ministry that helps people with drug and alcohol addiction.

“Our truck has been victimized tonight and it’s instrumental in fundraising for our ministry,” ministry worker Harold Hoskin said.

The ministry also reportedly does plumbing and construction work around the City of St. Louis.
