Police Chase Ends in Warrendale

I don't know all of the details as of this moment. However, according to witnesses and what I saw myself, a police chase that started in Dearborn Heights ended early this afternoon in Warrendale with a horrific crash on Artesian, just north of W. Warren Ave.

On the scene as of 3:28 p.m. this afternoon there were:
  • 5 patrol cars from the Dearborn Heights Police Department;
  • 1 motorcycle unit from the Dearborn Heights Police Department;
  • 3 patrol cars from the Detroit Police Department;
  • 2 ambulances;
  • 2 wreckers; and
  • A dozen or so gawkers.
There was also a helicopter overhead. However, I could not make out whether it was from a police agency, a local news crew or just a random helicopter.

I haven't seen anything about this in the news. I don't know who was being chased or what happened to those involved. If and when I learn more, I will post it here.

In the meantime, let me just say this: fleeing and evading the police is a bad idea.
