Two men are facing charges after a high-speed chase in Cedar Rapids.
The police pursuit began just after midnight on Monday when officers on Interstate 380 tried to stop a car with license plates that didn’t match the vehicle’s description. The car sped away and reached speeds over 100 miles-an-hour, according to police.
The car left I-380 and hit another vehicle. The driver fled the scene on foot, but was captured four hours later when he entered a gas station with no shoes, covered in mud, and asked people for a ride.
Twenty-one-year-old Adam Anderson is facing a long list of traffic related charges and possession of marijuana. A passenger in the car, 22-year-old Dominick Washington, was arrested at the scene of the crash on drug charges.
Police say the driver of the car that was hit was taken a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries
