JOPLIN, Mo. — Friday around 4:30 PM a reported end of police pursuit summoned Joplin Fire Department and METS ambulance.
Sgt Jared Delzell tells us exclusively at the scene a detective attempted to stop a subject wanted for Felony Weapons Violation. It began less than a mile away on E 4th near Florida.
As the suspect pickup, traveling east on 4th, approached the Rangeline intersection it split between two vehicles causing minor damage to them. But the Ford F-150 pickup was totaled, when striking a traffic signal pole head-on.
The wanted male was not injured and he was arrested. Another person was detained for a short time and then released at the scene.
