A weekend wreck after a high speed police chase in Hamilton County left two people injured. Just before 11 PM Saturday Night on I-35, a trooper with the Iowa State Patrol clocked a vehicle going 92 MPH. The trooper attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused and led troopers on a chase reaching speeds of up to 138 MPH. The incident report says the driver drove through the chase with no headlights on as well. The driver was identified as 18 year old, Khalil Crowley of Waterloo. Crowley eventually lost control and rolled the vehicle multiple times just north of Ellsworth. A 16 year old girl was a passenger in the vehicle. The State Patrol says that Crowley was wearing a seat belt but the passenger was not. She was seriously injured and taken by life flight to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines. Crowley also suffered injuries and was taken by ambulance to Mary Greeley Hospital in Ames. Iowa State Patrol Trooper Paul Gardner said Monday Morning, that the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending on the driver.
