Suburban man accused of leading Michigan police on 30-mile, high-speed chase

BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man from Burbank, Illinois, is in police custody after allegedly leading officers on a 30-mile, high-speed chase on a freeway in southwestern Michigan.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reports that no one was injured during the pursuit which reached speeds over 100 mph Saturday afternoon.

State police troopers tried to stop the man who was speeding westbound on Interstate 94 in an Audi. The Audi’s driver rear-ended a patrol car in Benton Township, southwest of Grand Rapids.

The Audi spun off the freeway and struck a barrier cable.

Police did not release the man’s name.
