Missouri man perishes when cops chase him into Northern Iowa town

WADENA, IOWA – A Missouri man perished during a high-speed chase when cops chased him into a Northern Iowa town and he crashed.

The incident took place Saturday morning, July 14 at about 1:45 AM in Wadena, Iowa. A Fayette county deputy became involved in a high speed pursuit with a 2008 black Kia Spectra, operated by 28-year-old Jared Hill of Jefferson City, Missouri. He drove northbound on Mills Street into Wadena and crossed the center line into the on-coming lane and the shoulder. He then struck an unoccupied, legally-parked 2007 Dodge Ram head-on. A report from the Iowa State Patrol indicated Hill was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision. He was later pronounced dead.

The Iowa State Patrol was assisted by Fayette county sheriff’s office and Wadena Fire Department.
