MILWAUKEE, WI — A pursuit initiated by University of Wisconsin Milwaukee police Thursday morning in Milwaukee led to a pair of crashes that involved a bicyclist and four other vehicles, reports WISN.

The multi-vehicle wreck was reported near Cramer Street and Linnwood Avenue, in the Upper East Side, at around 11:30 a.m.

Preliminary details indicate that an auto theft attempt in a UNM parking lot prompted a pursuit by university police. At one point, the fleeing white Kia hit a cyclist, who was reported uninjured but who received aid from officers.

Shortly after the suspect vehicle fled the first crash, the Kia ran a stop sign and collided with a black car before crashing into two parked vehicles.

Video captured by a witness shows the four people inside the suspect vehicle fleeing the second crash on foot.

An investigation and search for the four suspects remain underway.
