MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A car wreck in Midtown was causing problems for Memphis drivers after two cars collided and one struck a building near Cooper and Elzey.
Details are still coming in, but police and paramedics were spotted on the scene around 4:30 p.m.
One person was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Michelle McMillen, who runs Oorthoon’s gift shop next to where the crash happened, said several men were speeding down Cooper when they crashed into a vehicle that was turning left on Elzey. She said the men in the speeding vehicle got out of the car after the crash and started running.
“Some gentlemen got out of the car and started running down the street,” McMillen said. “And it was really crazy because they didn’t have their shoes on. The men who were running were in their sock-feet running down the street”
McMillen said the men were captured by police after a foot chase. Those officers happened to be nearby when the crash happened.
