Suspects in Custody After High-Speed Police Chase in South Florida

The pursuit started when the truck rammed an unmarked BSO van twice, officials said

Multiple suspects were taken into custody after police were involved in a high-speed pursuit of a pickup truck in South Florida Thursday afternoon.

Broward Sheriff's Office officials said the pursuit began when detectives tried to take a suspect who was wanted for an armed carjacking in Miami-Dade into custody in Hollywood.

While detectives were taking the suspect into custody, the black pickup rammed an unmarked BSO van twice, officials said.

Footage showed the suspects in the pickup being followed by officers on interstates and side streets in Broward County.

At one point, a passenger was let out of the truck and was seen putting their hands up as the truck continued to flee.

The pursuit continued until the truck went into a parking lot in the 4400 block of S. State Road 7 In Davie and was rammed by a police SUV. Officers moved in and the driver was taken into custody.

Multiple suspects were taken into custody during the incident. Officials said a rifle that was thrown out of the truck during the pursuit was also recovered.
