Share post:

CHICAGO, IL – On Friday, a high-speed police pursuit took a dramatic and unforeseen twist when an alleged carjacking suspect, 22-year-old Raymond Jackson, was struck by an Illinois State Police (ISP) vehicle in Chicago.

According to ISP reports the incident began earlier in the evening at 6:13 p.m. when two men, armed with a firearm, allegedly stole a vehicle in the 6600 block of Rockwell Avenue. Following the carjacking, the suspects were believed to have been involved in two separate armed robberies, setting the stage for a gripping police chase.

At 8:17 p.m., ISP patrol units initiated pursuit of the stolen vehicle. The chase, fraught with tension and adrenaline, eventually came to a sudden halt when the stolen vehicle stopped abruptly. In a desperate bid to escape, Raymond Jackson, an alleged carjacker, fled on foot.

Fate took an astonishing turn when Jackson slipped and fell directly into the path of an ISP police vehicle. The collision left Jackson critically injured, prompting officers to call for immediate medical assistance. First responders provided crucial care at the scene before transporting him to a nearby hospital.

Remarkably, no officers or other bystanders sustained injuries during this high-stakes encounter. A firearm was reportedly discovered at the scene.

While Jackson fights for his life in the hospital, the legal process has already swung into action. He now faces a slew of charges, including Unlawful Use of a Weapon by a Felon, Aggravated Vehicular Hijacking, two counts of Armed Robbery with a Firearm, and resisting arrest.
