PHOENIX - In a bizarre twist of events, police said a man who led them on a high speed chase on Valley freeways Tuesday night will likely not be charged for the pursuit.
According to Department of Public Safety spokesman Jake Pruet, the incident started when the man's vehicle hit a Phoenix fire truck on the westbound I-10.
Pruet said the driver was swerving all over the road, tailgating cars, and at times reaching up to 95 mph.
Police tried to stop the man, but believe he was unaware they were trying to pull him over.
Officers were able to spike the man's tires near Interstate 17 and Bell Road. The man got on the westbound 101 and eventually pulled over on the Loop 101 near Grand Avenue.
Police said the man was very disoriented when he was taken into custody. They believe the man is in his late 40's or early 50's.
Officers were able to confirm the man was a diabetic and that his blood sugar was dangerously low.
Pruet said the County Attorney will have to determine whether or not charges will be filed because it is a medical issue.
