Car Crashes Into House After High Speed Chase

Knoxville (WVLT) -- An East Tennessee man, involved in a recent high speed chase with authorities, is once again in trouble with the law.

Knoxville police say they found 21 year-old Jametrick King pinned inside of a stolen car that crashed Sunday night on Delrose Drive in East Knoxville.

Authorities are also looking for 23 year-old Dante Smith, who is believed to have been with King at the time of the crash.

King was taken to U.T. Medical Center to be treated for his injuries but has since been released.

He is a suspect in an unspecified armed robbery that happened last week.

Police charged King with drug possession last week, following a high speed chase on November 11.

In that chase, officers had spotted King and another man, 25 year-old Ronald Hays, in Mechanicsville, and tried to pull them over, but they took off.

The chase went onto I-40 and reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.

Police say the suspects surrendered after realizing authorities had blocked the interstate at Pellissippi Parkway.

Officer say Hays was behind the wheel and he was charged with drunk driving, felony fleeing, felony reckless endangerment, and several other charges.
