Bystanders who witnessed the high speed hunt of the suspect share their experience.
Jaylene Ellard, one of the bystanders who was out with a friend on the crisp fall evening said, “The police cars just kept coming. They just kept coming. ”
Another witness said the vehicles were driving up to 80 km/h in the 50 km/h zone.
Brian McNeill, who was in a parking lot with a group of friends when the vehicles sped past said, “That high-speed chase should have never, ever in a million years have happened downtown.”
One witness said police cars began to block streets that connect to Jasper Avenue. The U-Haul eventually doubled back and drove the opposite way down Jasper Avenue. Near 107th Street the van struck at least two pedestrians.
Pat Hannigan was about a quarter-block away when he heard a loud bang. He said,”I saw the van on its side, it flipped over, U-Haul van.And they had a guy handcuffed on the ground and obviously they smashed out the window. They had a pipe or something in their hand.”
