Police said they initially tried to stop Jerome Douglas for a traffic violation on Wednesday. Witness Sheena Knowles was counting her blessings after she wasn't hurt in the chase, which ended near NW 114th Street and NW 14th Avenue.
A driver was taken into custody after a short chase on I-95 Thursday, police said.
On Wednesday Miami-Dade Police auto theft detectives tried to stop the black Mercedes SUV for a traffic violation, but the driver did not stop and eluded them, spokesman Det. Roy Rutland said in a statement.
Detectives saw the same driver Thursday at about 2 p.m., but he again fled. During the ensuing chase, the suspect assaulted a Miami-Dade Schools Police officer with a vehicle, Rutland said.
Miami-Dade Schools Police said they are charging the driver, Jerome Douglas, 26, with fleeing and eluding police and with aggravated assault with a vehicle on a law enforcement officer.
Douglas and his passenger's run from the law was short-lived after the Mercedes slammed into a white Ion near NW 114th Street and NW 14th Avenue.
"The police were chasing the guy, and the young lady was at the stop sign, and evidently he lost control," witness Sheena Knowles said.
The driver of the Ion, who was unscathed, declined to comment.
Knowles was counting her blessings after her leisurely walk turned into a chaotic scene when the police chase flew by her.
"God, it wasn't my time," she said.
