High-speed chase ends in Tacoma

A high-speed pursuit ended in Tacoma on Thursday after the driver rolled a stolen car, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies spotted a stolen car about 9 a.m. and recognized the man in the passenger seat because he was wanted on a felony warrant. Deputies chased the vehicle but quickly lost it.

They found it moments later.

The driver apparently crashed into another car at South 96th Street and South Yakima Avenue, struck a curb and rolled onto its side.

Nobody was seriously hurt, although the other car suffered significant damage.

By the time deputies arrived, the passenger wanted on a warrant was gone. He likely was dropped off after deputies lost sight of the stolen car during the chase, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.
