Trooper Hit by SUV While Pursuing a Fleeing Suspect
March 11, 2021
PHOENIX, AZ – A trooper with the Arizona Highway Patrol was struck by an SUV while pursuing a fleeing suspect on foot early Saturday morning.
According to the Arizona Republic, the trooper attempted to stop a gray sedan for speeding along I-17 near Cactus Road at about 3 a.m.
The driver of the sedan exited the freeway and drove through a red light before losing control of the vehicle and spinning out in the roadway. The unidentified suspect then got out of the vehicle and fled on foot.
A white Chevrolet Tahoe struck the trooper as he was running after the suspect, who then got into the Tahoe as it sped eastbound on Cactus Rd. At this point, the trooper began firing shots at the fleeing vehicle.
Police located the Tahoe a short while later and took the suspect to the hospital with serious injuries caused by the trooper’s gunfire. She has been identified only as a female teenager.
The driver has yet to be found.
The trooper was taken to the hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries that he sustained when he was hit by the SUV.
