Two Men Facing Charges After Short Car Chase Through Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Two men are facing charges after leading police on a short car chase through Kennewick Friday night.

Kennewick and Pasco Police are investigating a case that started in Pasco and ended with a car crash in Kennewick.

Kennewick Police say when they tried to pull over the SUV, the driver refused to stop and lead officers on a short chase to La Serena Apartments on 4th Avenue.

That's where the driver lost control of the SUV and hit the curb in the parking lot at the front entrance of the apartment complex.

But this all started with a call from the SUV's owner to Pasco Police saying, he found his car.

"We got a notification from Pasco PD that there was a vehicle southbound on Columbia Center Boulevard that was listed as a possible stolen. The owner of the vehicle was behind it. Pasco Police ask that we stop it, that there was probable cause to arrest the driver," Cpl. Todd Dronen of the Kennewick Police Dept. told NBC Right Now.

Kennewick Police say the passenger in the SUV was arrested at the scene.

The driver ran off after losing control, but police eventually tracked him down with a K-9 unit and witnesses.

The driver is facing felony eluding charges in Benton County and Pasco Police are investigating the initial report of a stolen vehicle.

No injuries were reported throughout the ordeal and no names have been released.

Kennewick Police don't believe drugs and alcohol were a factor.
