Just past 3:30 a.m., officers from the St. Charles County Auto Theft Task Force pulled over the driver of a GMC Denali who they believed was casing the area of 5th Street and Interstate 70. While speaking to the suspects, the driver accelerated forward and rammed into a police car. The SUV also hit a St. Charles County Sheriff's deputy who was waiting for a prisoner transport. The deputy was seriously injured and later taken to the hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time.

The SUV led police down eastbound Interstate 70 in St. Louis County. The chase ended after the SUV crashed into a Cottleville Police patrol car on Route 141 at Ryder Trail.

When officers searched the SUV, they reportedly found drugs and guns.
