After a man shot at police during an April 29 traffic stop, officers chased him for 60 miles through suburban Phoenix, at one point following his pickup across an airport runway before it slammed into a fence next to a freeway.
On the other side of the fence happened to be San Tan Ford, which is owned by the chairman of the Ford National Dealer Council, Tim Hovik. Police said the suspect then stole a vehicle from inside the dealership and crashed through a closed service bay door, running over two officers and striking a janitorial employee.
One of the officers died, and the other was hospitalized with critical injuries. The 25-year-old driver was arrested near the dealership and has been charged with first-degree murder.
