A Prairie Grove police vehicle was totaled during a high-speed chase early Friday morning.
The Westville Police Department began a pursuit at 12:40 a.m. of a suspect traveling east on Highway 62. The pursuit entered Prairie Grove at 12:45 a.m.
Prairie Grove Police joined the pursuit, with the suspect’s vehicle traveling at over 120 mph. The vehicle ended up turning north onto Marna Lynn Drive, which is a dead end.
At the end of the street, the suspect vehicle turned around and headed back south on Marna Lynn at a high rate of speed toward the Prairie Grove police vehicle.
The officer veered off the roadway in an attempt to avoid a collision. However, the suspect purposely turned towards the officer and rammed the patrol vehicle, disabling both vehicles.
The suspect then fled on foot and ran towards a house. According to the police report, an Adair County Sheriff vehicle crashed into a fence and the suspect. The suspect then tried to get up and was reaching into his jacket pocket.

Weston-Hill is being held in Washington County Detention Center and facing charges of aggravated assault, fleeing, resisting arrest, reckless driving and driving on a suspended driver’s license. He also had a warrant for a parole violation.
