BROOKINGS – An attempt to flee from a police traffic stop ended badly for a 28-year-old Brookings driver when his car missed a turn, jumped a curb and plowed through a snowbank, narrowly missing a commercial building.
The incident began about 2:12 a.m. Sunday when a Brookings patrol officer noticed a moving vehicle whose windows were frosted over. He attempted to stop the driver at Third Avenue and Front Street
The policeman turned on his lights and siren, but the object of his chase continued south on Main where the driver finally stopped. The officer got out of his car, and as he approached the 1996 Chevy Lumina on foot, the driver took off, fleeing the scene.
