A kidnapping, a car theft, and a high-speed chase reached a dramatic conclusion on Thursday, September 27th, after a car accident disabled the fleeing vehicle and forced the suspects to attempt to escape from the police on foot.

It’s never smart to run from a hit and run accident, but things ended badly for a woman in Polk County when she fled the scene of an accident.
