SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Dashcam footage shows the moment an officer’s cruiser crashed during a high-speed chase in front of a condominium complex in Southfield.

Officials said a black pickup truck that officers were pursuing was reported stolen. Prior to the crash, the suspects inside led officers on a chase.

The incident came as a shock to Davian and Joesph Montgomery, who live in the complex.

“The police could have killed them trying to get the people or they could have killed somebody trying to escape,” said Joseph Montgomery.

The two suspects were taken into custody. Officials said they are no strangers to Southfield police.

“These suspects in this case are apart of an organized auto theft ring that specifically targeted vehicles in Southeast, Michigan,” said Police Chief Elvin Barren.
