Two more people are dead after another attempted traffic stop gone awry.
Springfield Police say they tried to pull over a gold Buick late Sunday after it ran a red light and sped down 11th street. The car initially slowed, but then sped off south on 11th. It hit a westbound vehicle at 11th and Madison. 25 year old Austin Stults and 52 year old Roderick Ross were extricated from the vehicle and taken to St. John’s, where they later died.
This accident is the second in a week’s time where people have died after trying to evade police. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
