Man dead and child hospitalized after high speed chase
One man is dead and a missing child is hospitalized after a high speed chase in central Iowa early Friday morning.
The chase began in Clive, when a police officer attempted to stop the driver. Authorities say the car had a plastic license plate cover that made the plate number hard to read.
"It's a terrible thing I mean to know that someone's driving in such a reckless manner and not only endangering his life but the life of a child and everyone on the road and police officers," said Sgt. Brian Shear, Indianola Police Department.
When speeds reached 140 miles per hour the officer called off the chase because he was unable to keep up with the suspect.
The child who was found in the backseat of the car, was taken to a hospital. The child's condition is not known. The unidentified child, was reported missing in December.
The Iowa State Patrol followed the driver through Polk, Marion and Warren counties. Eventually the driver was stopped in Indianola after hitting a police car.
