SUN PRAIRIE -

A brief high-speed chase ended in Sun Prairie just before noon on Thursday.

We don't yet know what triggered the chase, but Matty Burns said on the KRTV Facebook page that it started in or near the Marketplace area of Great Falls.

Lea Ann Hacke said that Sheriff's Deputies were following the car, which eventually turned in to the Sun Prairie neighborhood and flew down Grant Drive.

Brooke Meddock told KRTV that she saw several patrol cars chasing the car, and said that the car almost hit her neighbor.

The suspect vehicle, which had significant damage to its side, was seen being towed away from the scene near the intersection of Cleveland and Eisenhower.

We received one unconfirmed report that officers may have used "stop sticks."

Montana Highway Patrol troopers were also at the scene. One of the patrol vehicles appeared to have sustained some front-end damage. 

Officers at the scene would not confirm whether the suspect was taken into custody, but did say that no one was seriously injured in the incident.

We will update you when we get more information.


(UPDATE, 4:35 p.m.) We have confirmed that the chase began, or at least passed through, the Marketplace area in southwest Great Falls.

The damage to the patrol vehicle happened when it inadvertently hit a car near Biolife that was not involved in the chase.

A family member of the person who was driving the car says that the driver was not injured, just "shaken up" a bit, and the damage to the vehicle is "minimal." 


(UPDATE, MAY 26) The high-speed chase has resulted in felony charges against Brandon Burchard. Click here for details.
