Local News

UPDATE: Davenport Police Department released more details regarding the cause of Wednesday evening’s police chase.

At approximately 6:30 p.m., officers initiated a vehicle pursuit in reference to a stolen vehicle being driven by a wanted suspect.

The pursuit lasted several minutes.

Police attempted a PIT maneuver, which led the car they were chasing to hit a 6-inch curb and lose control.

The pursuit was terminated in the area of E. 53rd Street and Tremont Avenue.

The driver crashed in an area of road construction, which is why there was such a large curb in the middle of that road.

According to the police department, the crash caused “disabling damage” to the stolen vehicle.

The crash did not involve any other vehicles, and both occupants in the suspect vehicle refused medical attention.

Detectives are following up on the incident.

No further information is available at this time.
