COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A suspect is in custody after leading police in a high-speed car chase which ended with a crash in Colorado Springs on Friday evening.

The crash happened on South Academy Boulevard and Airport Road. The road southbound on Academy Blvd is blocked past Airport Road.

The Colorado Springs Police Department told KRDO that two officers received minor injuries but were not taken to the hospital. The suspect was not hurt and is in custody. He is facing multiple felony charges, according to a sergeant.

On Friday evening, police say they responded to reports of an attempted carjacking in the northeast side of the city. Shortly after, officers responded to an armed carjacking at the Citadel Mall. The victim told police that a man pulled out a gun and stole his black Toyota 4Runner.

A few minutes later, police spotted the stolen vehicle driving southbound on Academy Blvd and started pursuing the suspect. Officers did a Tactical Vehicle Intervention and were able to stop the suspect.

CSPD told KRDO that officers kept pursuing the suspect because of the seriousness of the crimes and the imminent danger to the public.

  1. Great Job CSPD….NEVER!!…I SAY AGAIN….NEVER!!!! give into leftwing propaganda on giving up in a chase….as a CS taxpayer….I demand no less from my police dept…and I go on record as speaking for the entirety of the CS population…GREAT JOB GUYS!!!!

  2. Our PD is top notch. No doubt about it. Bad dude in jail, city a bit safer. Imagine where carjack suspect would be if we defunded our police?

    1. Probably in a Democrat controlled city!! They love to protect criminals because that’s what all liberals are.

  3. The good news is that the owner of the Toyota is getting it back. The bad news is that he isn’t getting it back in the same condition as he left it.

  4. Great job CSPD you managed to do what Fountain couldn’t do. People in that city should arm themselves since they seem to have no protection. This 13 year old needs to be locked in a cage till he is 80.
