MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A two-county police pursuit ended Tuesday afternoon with a crash and lots of questions.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said a call came in around 3 pm about a possible home invasion robbery and a pursuit began on West Sunrise Boulevard near Fort Lauderdale.
At some point deputies learned there was no home invasion but, instead, a robbery.
Broward Sheriff’s Office cruisers were in pursuit of the suspect when his vehicle crashed into a BSO vehicle on the southbound lanes of I-95, near Miami Gardens Drive, just before 3 p.m.
The suspect was taken into custody and three lanes of the highway were shut down for more than 2 hours.
CBS News Chopper4 was over the scene where investigators were gathering evidence.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the crash or during the pursuit and late Tuesday afternoon, a BSO spokesperson says they do not believe this person is indeed a robbery suspect.
CBS 4 News asked BSO extensive questions about how all this unfolded and whether this pursuit was appropriate.
We’re told they’re trying to get answers from investigators and that BSO will only pursue someone if they believe they are a danger to the public.
