Newton police release video of Thursday’s 100+ mph car chase; fortunately no one was hurt

Dash cam highlights from today’s high speed car chase (vehicle speeds were well in excess of 100 mph). The subject who was taken into custody was wanted as an escapee from Colorado, was in a stolen vehicle, and made comments that he was facing significant prison time and had nothing to lose. On two separate occasions he crossed left of center to go head on with marked patrol units forcing them into the ditch. He also rammed an unsuspecting motorist who fortunately wasn’t more seriously harmed. Our community is so very fortunate someone did not lose their life today.
We ant to thank all of the area police and Fire/EMS personnel who responded . The teamwork in this area is amazing!
