FLINT, Mich. (WNEM) - A suspect is dead and another person is hospitalized after Flint police say the suspect tried to flee from a traffic stop.

Investigators said officers were conducting traffic control in the 5500 block of N. Saginaw Street Saturday, Sept. 17 around 2 a.m. when the driver of a maroon Chevrolet Impala refused to stop.

Officers in a patrol vehicle with red and blue lights activated moved their vehicle behind the Impala and approached the driver of the vehicle, according to Flint Police.

As officers approached the vehicle, investigators said the driver sped away.

While officers were trying to catch up to the suspect, they said they saw the vehicle had lost control, crossed the center line and struck a white Cadillac sedan that was traveling east on Pierson Road near Martin Luther King Avenue.

The driver of the Impala, identified as 26-year-old Vondreece Davis, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police learned Davis had an active felony arrest warrant for concealed weapons violations.

The driver of the Cadillac was taken to Hurley Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition.

Police believe speed as well as alcohol and/or drugs were factors in the crash.

While the investigation is ongoing, anyone with more information is asked to call the Flint Police Department at 810-237-6892. To stay anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL.
