GERMANTOWN -- Germantown and Mequon police were involved in a pursuit on Monday, July 6th following a two-vehicle crash. The pursuit had to be terminated for safety reasons, and it is not believed the subjects are in custody.
On Monday morning, shortly before 11:00 a.m., Germantown police received a 911 call regarding a two-vehicle accident with possible injuries at the intersection of Division Road and State Highway 145.
Shortly thereafter, two other vehicles came to the scene, and picked up the driver of one of the vehicles involved in the crash. Police believe that driver was hurt.
A witness stopped to help, but police say someone flashed a gun, and told them not to interfere.
A short time later, a pursuit ensued. It only lasted about three minutes before officers backed off.
"You could have an innocent victim going through a stop sign that had stopped and a vehicle going that fast does not have a chance to stop and there could have been another serious accident," Ray Borden with the Germantown Police Department said.
Police say stop sticks were deployed, but the driver just went around them.
We're told the vehicle was spotted on Tuesday night, but there have been no arrests.
