SHOCK VIDEO: Car disintegrates after crash during high-speed chase through Detroit

A driver fleeing police during a high-speed chase that reportedly reached speeds of 115 miles per hour was hauled out of the vehicle after a spectacular crash.

Fox 2 Detroit captured the chase and aftermath:

The chase began in Detroit, and ended dramatically in Sterling Heights when the driver attempted to avoid stopped cars and lost control.

The chopper video shows him serving towards the middle of the road and sliding through the media before hitting a tree on the drivers side, spinning around multiple times before coming to a stop in the intersection.

Police then swarmed the vehicle and hauled out the driver and a passenger.

According to Fox 2:

According to Eastpointe Police, they were called around 11 a.m. to a carjacking at Dollar General on Gratiot. The caller said two men pulled up in a Kia Soul and drove off in the Kia and the stolen car.

The car was found in Detroit near Gratiot and State Fair. The Kia was determined to have been stolen in Roseville on March 27th and believed to have been used in an armed robbery in Harper Woods earlier in the day on Tuesday.

When Detroit police approached the Kia, two men ran off but were quickly arrested. Two other men were still in the car and led police on a wild chase.

The shocking video shows the driver blazing through and intersection and narrowly missing crossing vehicles.

According to Eastpointe police, “one person in the car had serious injuries while the other has minor injuries.”

Charges are pending.
