Seems like we revisit this every so often. Day before Thanksgiving and two people die as the result of a high speed chase. Is it worth it still, do we still need high speed chases? With the technology we have now with facial recognition, air support, etc is it still needed? I'm leaning towards no unless the chase begins as the result of a witnessed felony in progress. Pulling someone over and then they speed off isn't worth it imo. LEO already have tag and owner info. Catch them tomorrow or the next week at home. A stolen vehicle isn't worth a life. The 24yo was an elementary school teacher of the year in Edmond. If this was posted already somewhere I didn't see it.

((
The suspect was driving erratically at speeds over 100 mph, when he crashed into a vehicle at State Highway 51 west of Yale in Payne County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.))
Just because you have a tag number,if you get it doesn't mean the owner of the vehicle is the driver.


While driving, the suspect passed a Yale police officer on duty. Before the officer could turn around, OHP said the crash already occurred.


The two victims died at the scene, and another was taken to a local hospital. A child was also inside the vehicle that was struck and was not seriously hurt.


OHP said the suspect then fled on foot, leaving behind a female passenger in a stolen truck.
