Man Tried to Flee Police

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A man tried unsuccessfully to flee from Kennewick Police.

It started off as a common traffic stop but the driver then took police on a high-speed chase.

Police did not pursue for fear of endangering the public, but minutes later they found the same car smashed up near Desert Hills Middle School.

Police soon caught the 18-year-old driver that tried to flee on foot and said he faces possible eluding charges.
