Last night, officers responded to multiple traffic crashes at the 500 block of Veterans Parkway W.
The investigation revealed that Michael Lowry, 26, was driving westbound on Veterans Parkway when another driver struck his vehicle but would not stop. Lowry followed after the vehicle in an attempt to get the other driver to stop. According to several witnesses, Lowry passed them at a high rate of speed, left his lane of travel and struck the other vehicle which caused the vehicle to flip over.
