A routine attempt to pull a car over in Baltimore County yesterday morning turned into a bizarre televised police chase across suburban Maryland, into the District and back into Prince George's County.
The chase lasted an hour and 10 minutes and ended in Prince George's with the fleeing car hitting two Maryland State Police vehicles, a pickup truck and a light pole before traveling onto a sidewalk and coming to a stop.
The hood of the car was crumpled and had been pushed open, obscuring the windshield. The car was belching steam from the radiator and sparks from the undercarriage.
