The Iowa State Patrol has yet to say why an eastern Iowa man was being pursued into central Iowa on early Sunday. The suspect, 26-year-old Scott Trimble of Davenport, was the subject of a lengthy chase down Interstate 80. The patrol says stop sticks were placed on I-80 by the Mitchellville police in Jasper County. Trimble’s car hit the sticks at a high rate of speed and he eventually lost control near the Colfax exit, vaulting over the median and hitting an oncoming semi head-on. Trimble was killed in the crash while a passenger, identified as Steve Miller, was injured. The truck driver wasn’t hurt.
