High-speed police chase down I-10 leaves behind 3 wrecks
SORRENTO - Law enforcement officers from multiple departments were involved in a multi-parish pursuit Sunday morning.
The chase started at 8:30 a.m. Sunday in Baton Rouge. Officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle. The two suspects inside the vehicle refused to stop and fled onto I-10 East.
Louisiana State Police told WBRZ News 2 that the suspects' pursuit caused two other individuals to drive off the roadway near the I-10 Bluebonnet exit and caused a third crash later on I-10.
