Minutes later, Deputies observed the stolen vehicle still traveling east on I-44 in St. Clair. Before Deputies were able to catch up to the stolen vehicle, the suspect exited the Interstate at the 242 overpass, lost control of the vehicle, and struck an embankment which disabled the vehicle. As Deputies arrived at the crash site, they observed the white male suspect running into a heavily wooded area east of St. Clair. Deputies checked the wooded area on foot with the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, St. Clair Police, and a helicopter however the suspect remains at large. Efforts to identify and apprehend the suspect are being conducted by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and Sullivan Police Department.
