Police chase ends in multi-vehicle crash in southwest Miami-Dade
A 20-year-old man was taken into custody Sunday night after fleeing from Miami-Dade police and causing a multi-vehicle crash, authorities said.
According to authorities, officers were called to the area of Carver Drive and Lincoln Boulevard, where several vehicles were “conducting reckless maneuvers in the roadway.”
Police said one officer tried to pull over the suspect, identified as Willie Harris, but the driver tried to run the officer off the roadway several times.
Police chased the suspect’s car as the department’s helicopter followed in the air, authorities said.
Police said Harris eventually crashed into a bus around 6:30 p.m., causing four other vehicles to crash at the intersection of Southwest 120th Street and 117th Avenue.
Cellphone video obtained by @OnlyinDade shows Harris being taken into custody.
A female passenger in one of the vehicles complained of neck pain and was transported to HCA Florida Kendall Hospital by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue in stable condition.
Harris is facing charges of assault on a law enforcement officer, fleeing and eluding police, reckless driving causing serious bodily injury, resisting an officer without violence and possession of cannabis.
