DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — A high speed chase ended in a car crash where the U of I Bomb Squad had to be called.
This happened early Friday evening by the Danville United Church of Christ near Main and Buchanan Streets.
Witnesses said about seven cars were chasing a vehicle through town before it crashed in front of the church, and caught fire. The suspect was taken to the hospital and no one else was hurt.
Police called the U of I Bomb Squad. They used a robot to retrieve two items from the crashed car. One looked like a suitcase. The bomb squad took the items to a secure location. The Danville Police Department said they did two controlled detonations and found one bomb.
Police wouldn’t confirm how they knew a bomb was in the car, or why the suspect had it.
