As the suspect led the AST on a high speed pursuit which endangered the lives of the innocent and troopers. With heavy traffic on the sky way troopers tried their very best in preventing any tragedy from happening. However that was inevitable. Upon joining the pursuit, Trooper Dillon, who was the only trooper to patrol in a POV, took lead of the pursuit. As the pursuit continued through plumbers sky way, the AST adopted the zig - zag tatic. This prevented civilians from being harmed by the dangerous suspect. However, at one of the turns, the suspect lost control of his car and crashed. Both later led the troopers on a foot pursuit. with the suspects' car on fire troopers called in Anchorage FD for assistance. At this point, everything went wrong for the troopers. The FD arrived promptly. However, the Civilian drivers, who were mostly speeding on the sky way, crashed into the Fire Engine which later crashed into the suspects' burning vehicle. With the impact from the engine, the suspects's vehicle exploded. This led to multiple explosions which followed. The AST immediately ordered the closure of Plumbers sky way.
