RAW: AZ police pursuit ends in massive crash

The suspect's vehicle started to spin before releasing a cloud of smoke. A suspect in a red vehicle began speeding along the freeways just before 10 a.m., according to KPHO.

Mitchell Timothy Taebel of Long Beach, Indiana, and Los Angeles remained jailed on suspicion of endangerment, aggravated assault, unlawful flight and other crimes after being arrested following the crash Wednesday in Tempe on a street near Arizona State University's main campus.

Authorities in Phoenix were in a high-speed pursuit of a red SUV.

The suspect drove at a high speed down the road for a short distance before hitting another vehicle head on and then appearing to flip over a few times.

Witnesses in the area described hearing the crash.

"You had to hear it; it was loud!" one witness said. "It was a sonic boom".

The suspect then climbed out of the auto and took off running, with DPS troopers chasing him on foot.

Bystanders then began pointing at the man, and the troopers pounced on him, forcing him to the ground.

Police took him into custody. He suffered minor injuries from the wreck.

The driver of the black SUV that Taebel struck was also injured.

DPS says Taebel has an extensive criminal history stretching across several states.

The driver of that vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital in serious condition.
