Posted: Updated:

Idalou Police Chief Albert Garcia released updated information on a Tuesday morning police chase across two counties.  Garcia says it "appears" the driver of a suspect vehicle intentionally rammed into oncoming traffic. 

The chase started around 1:30 a.m. when Idalou police had what appeared to be a routine traffic stop.

The suspects led officers east on Highway 62-82, through Lorenzo and then to Ralls. 

That's where the suspect vehicle, a passenger car, crashed into another passenger car.

A man and a woman in the suspect vehicle were airlifted to UMC. A woman in the other vehicle was taken by EMS with injuries that are not thought to be life threatening.

Chief Garcia says during the chase someone in the suspect vehicle threw out what appears to be narcotics. Garcia says after the crash, officer found methamphetamine in the vehicle.
