Innocent motorist hurt in chase crash still in induced coma
CREVE COEUR (AP) - A suburban St. Louis man remains in an induced coma, a week after his pickup was struck by a car that was being chased by St. Ann police.
The mother of 37-year-old Keith Lamkins of St. Peters told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he remains in critical but stable condition with several broken bones and a collapsed lung. He is on a respirator and fighting bacterial infections.
Lamkins and another innocent motorist were hurt Jan. 22 when a man in a stolen car tried to outrun police at speeds exceeding 100 mph. The stolen car struck Lamkins' pickup, causing it to overturn.
The other innocent motorist, 20-year-old Kara Grant of Overland, was treated for moderate injuries.
The suspect, 20-year-old Ronald Brandy of Wellston, is jailed on several charges.
