I went over to run laps at the track this evening. As I was finishing, a car drove by at a very high rate of speed. I watched him pass another car on the street that runs by the track. Then, he never slowed down for the next intersection on the corner (Ave. O & 19th St.). He hit another car in the intersection and then slammed into a tree and embankment. About the time he wrecked, here come 3 police cars chasing him. He jumps out of the car and starts running through the neighborhood. I watched the whole sequence of events. The police caught him a block away. The guy in the car he hit was hurt, but apparently will be okay. I have not seen anything on the news yet, so I do not know why they were chasing him. I am just thankful that no one was killed. I have run through that intersection hundreds of times over the years.
