ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Emergency crews in North St. Louis County were on the scene of an accident involving a van making deliveries for Amazon near the Jamestown Mall Tuesday afternoon.
Police say the accident stemmed from an earlier pursuit that concluded earlier in the afternoon.
According to police, just after 2 p.m., officers arrived on the scene and observed a white RAM PRO-master van, belonging to a contractor who delivers for Amazon, which was being sought in connection with an armed car-jacking from another jurisdiction.
Velda City police assisted with a traffic stop to try and stop the vehicle. Police say the van failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated.
The pursuit ended and the vehicle went over the median in the 4400 block of N. Highway 67. The suspect, identified Wednesday as Cory Johnson, 34, of St. Louis, resisted arrest but was eventually taken into custody, police say.
No officers or citizens were injured in the accident. One police car sustained damage in the incident.
