A high speed chase that started in Belleville, Illinois ended in East St. Louis with a crash and a hair salon damaged.
The accident occurred at 22nd Street and State Street in the Belleville area Friday afternoon. Police said an officer tried to stop a car driving erratically but the car sped off. When the suspects drove into East St. Louis, the suspects struck another car and smashed into the Harlem’s Hair Studio.
The front window was broken as a result of the crash, police say.
“Just worried if we're going to be open today and all the trouble that this has caused, like it's been a stressful morning,” said Danyaile Hopson, who works at Harlem Hair Studio.
Authorities said all occupants inside both vehicles suffered non-life threatening injuries.
No one was inside the salon at the time of the crash.
