Correction: Clarification:

Police say the pursuit was called off before the suspect turned onto Bank Street.

A brief police chase through Kingman that reached speeds of at least 75 mph Monday ended when Jack Taylor Lagerwey, the man being pursued, ran a red light at the intersection of Bank Street and Gordon Avenue and plowed into a large green truck.

The Kingman Police Department received a report that a trailer had been stolen from the 2000 block of Club Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Within four minutes of the call, KPD's on-duty sergeant spotted a gray Mazda truck towing the trailer north on Harrison Avenue.

The sergeant attempted to pull the 43-year-old Lagerwey over, and at that point "the chase was on," said KPD Sergeant Bob Fisk.

The trailer fell off (it was later recovered), and the chase took those involved to the west side of train tracks, over toward K-Mart, on to Airway Avenue and through many of the streets to the west of Andy Devine Avenue. Lagerwey ran multiple red lights, Fisk said.

Lagerwey made it back on to Airway Avenue, where he started going west, Fisk said. He turned onto Bank Street and started heading north, he added.

At that point, the sergeant in charge of directing the pursuit called it off because of traffic and how fast Lagerwey was driving, Fisk said.

Shortly thereafter, Lagerwey ran his last red light of the day and crashed into the large green truck, which was carrying two occupants.

Lagerwey was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center because of possible face and head lacerations. One of the occupants of the truck was also transported, but it is unclear what his injuries were.

The truck's other occupant didn't need to be transported via ambulance, but she was taken to the hospital by one of the lieutenants on the scene, Fisk said.

Police expect to take a sample of Lagerwey's blood to be analyzed for alcohol and drugs, Fisk said. Lagerwey did not own the truck he was driving, but Fisk said it wasn't stolen either.

Police recovered a bag filled with a substance consistent with marijuana, Fisk said.

The incident is being investigated.

"We don't have all the details and facts just yet," Fisk said.

@ better kingman,

Seriously. "when marijuana becomes legal and easily availible, watch crime sky rocket". Not your words exactly but good enough.

Marijuana has been easier to get than alcohol since I was 17 back in 1977. Where have you been for 35 years?

Oh and Crime. Check all the stats in med pot states and you will get a surprise. The crimes you mention hardly changed from pre pot law time.

One last thing. Post the number of proven marijuana deaths recorded by hospital ER stats.
Good luck finding any.

Alcohol's ability to kill every cell in your body puts all other drugs to shame. By and far the highest killer of human beings worldwide by a manmade substance.

You can post your opinion. Making up your own facts or judgements would only apply.....in your head.

Marijuana is much more dangerous than alcohol. The only reason more deaths are currently caused by alcohol is that it is legal, widely available and marijuana comparatively is not.

When marijuana becomes legal, and is widely available, watch out- the murders, DUI's, robberies, etc. will skyrocket.

Anyone who disagrees is, well,...smoking something.

There's no way that substance was marijuana, no way! Because people who are high on marijuana simply don't do these kind of things...I know this for a fact because all the marijuana proponents who have written in to KDM have told have told us so...and that's that!

A trailor was reported stolen, the truck pulling the trailor was not the drivers and not stolen. Did lagerwey borrow a truck and then hook it up to a trailor with intent of a crime???
