FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a fleeing motorist has suffered serious injuries from crashing into a suburban St. Louis home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 30-year-old St. Charles County woman was leading state troopers on a chase when she slammed into a Ferguson home around 5:45 p.m. Friday.

Police said no one at the home was injured. But the woman's vehicle caught fire, and she was taken to a St. Louis hospital.

Court records show the woman was driving on a suspended license after failing to pay court fees.

   A suspect is in custody following an hour-long chase that left police officer injured.  

   Authorities say the chase started about 4:00 p.m. Monday in Potosi after the suspect took off during a traffic stop.

   The suspect stopped briefly for a DeSoto Police officer, but then rammed the police cruiser, causing it to strike the officer.  

   "The subject stopped outside Potosi, the officer exited his car and then the subject went in reverse.  He then hit the officers car." said Sgt. Kevin Miller of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

   It's not clear how serious the officer's injuries are.

  The chase ended about 5:00 p.m. at Telegraph and Tenbrook in Arnold. The Missouri Highway Patrol says the man got out of the vehicle and surrendered.

CAHOKIA, Ill. (AP) - Police say a suspect running from authorities jumped from a highway ramp leading to a Mississippi River bridge into St. Louis. The man survived and is hospitalized.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that investigators in Cahokia, Ill., just southeast of St. Louis, were conducting a sweep Wednesday for fugitives and illegal drugs and guns when the man sped away from police trying to stop his car.

The suspect then crashed on an on-ramp of the Poplar Street Bridge and tried to flee on foot before leaping over a guardrail.

Police say he survived the fall and attempted to hide after he landed but was arrested.

His name and medical status were not immediately available Thursday.

Police have identified the elderly woman who died after being hit by another driver who was fleeing police.

The incident began when officers saw two suspects driving a stolen vehicle in South St. Louis near Grand and Osage. During the traffic stop, the suspect--an 18 year-old man--threw his car into reverse and almost hit the police officer. He then sped off, but hit a car with three passengers, including 87-year-old Virginia Bedrosian. Bedrosian was taken to the hospital where she died later Tuesday night.

The suspect was caught after a short foot chase and his passenger was taken into custody as well.
