High-Speed State Police Chase From Westland To Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michigan State Police were involved in a high-speed chase that started in Westland and continued through the western suburbs into Detroit.

According to eyewitness reports, the suspect vehicle was traveling 90 to 100 miles per hour on I-94, late Thursday morning, from near Detroit Metro Airport in Romulus to the Southfield Freeway.

The suspect then got off I-94 at the southbound Southfield, turned northbound on the Southfield, and was last spotted near Ford Rd. The suspect then exited the freeway and is on the surface streets going 80 miles per hour near Joy and Wyoming.

Shortly before 10 a.m., the suspect was on I-96 near the Southfield Freeway. At times, police are saying someone was waving a hand out of a front window.

The suspect bailed out of the car at Evergreen and I-96, according to Westland police, and was taken into custody.

No injuries were reported.

It’s unclear at this time what prompted the pursuit.

  1. Crazy chase. I watched the driver sped up the shoulder, Northbound on I-275 through a traffic jam related to a very bad roll-over accident. The driver must have made a u-turn on I-275 to avoid the traffic jam and drive Southbound on I-275. The suspect passed me at a very high speed then exited on I-94. Four police vehicles in pursuit. Eventful commute. Any update on what prompted the chase?
