Traffic is back to normal after a robbery, pursuit and crash in Colorado Springs.
The intersection of Powers and Airport and all impacted lanes of traffic reopened just before 8 p.m. Friday.
Police say a suspect first went inside of a business located at the SW Corner of Shelton and Academy. Police did not say whether the suspect tried to rob that particular business first but we do know that the business owner did locked the door so the suspect could not enter.
The same suspect then left that business and went to the Cash America Pawn located at 1891 South Academy. Police say the robbery alarm went off and shots were fired inside of that business by the suspect.
The suspect left the business in a gray Hyundai Sonata when police spotted the suspect vehicle. The police chase started afterwards. The suspect reportedly crashed into a black Tacoma pickup truck. That truck then crashed into a motorcyclist who was taken to Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. The suspect was also taken to Memorial Hospital with traffic related injuries.
