In Randolph County, two people are injured after a police pursuit along Rt. 150.
Police say 48-year-old Shane Smith of Tennessee failed to stop when an officer tried pulling him over for reckless driving around 10 in the morning yesterday.
They say Smith continued driving south on Rt. 3 six miles north of Chester, turning east onto Rt. 150 towards Steelville.
Police deployed spike strips, but Smith kept going until he tried passing a truck near Percy. They say Smith swerved back into the truck to avoid a semi in the opposite lane, and both cars left the road.
Charges are pending and the crash is still under investigation.
