Cascade County Deputy Killed after High-Speed Chase

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - One Cascade County Deputy is now dead after being struck by a suspects vehicle in a high-speed car chase that started on highway 89.

It all ended at the corner of 15th street and Smelter after leading officers on high speed chase. Police used spike strips to bring the black Cadillac to a stop. One neighbor says he was terrified.

"When we were in the yard right here we saw the cops pull this car over behind us and surround him actually looks like he couldn't move." Kevin Crawford said.

It took about 20 minutes and multiple police officers to get the suspect on the ground and under control.

"We saw the officers pull him out of the car and wrestle him to the ground" Crawford said.

The suspect was then placed in handcuffs and onto a stretcher where he was later sent to Benefis Hospital.

"I need water" were the suspects final words as police closed the door on the ambulance.

 At this time police can not confirm who the man is, nor what led to this high speed chase, but one officer is dead in the line of duty.
