UNION CITY, Tenn. — A high speed police chase ends with a crash. Police said Monday night the driver of a stolen car collided with two patrol cars and was taken into custody. “I came out and my car was gone and I thought it was a joke at first,” Antoinette Nolan, the owner of the car, said. Nolan said just after 5:00 p.m., she stopped to pick up one of her daughters. “I figured since it was cold I’d leave the car running and just run in, like five minutes,” she said. She said it only took a matter of seconds before she realized her car was gone. “I thought it was something like you would see in a movie because this is Union City,” Nolan said, “We really don’t have that type of thing to happen.” Police say just after 11:00 p.m., Monday they spotted Nolan’s car along Highway 21 East headed toward Kenton. Officers said Montario Bond was behind the wheel and rammed a Tennessee Highway Patrol cruiser and an Obion County patrol car before totaling Nolan’s and being taken into custody. “I couldn’t imagine what he was thinking. He had to be scared as well as the officers that were actually in pursuit because anybody’s life could’ve been lost,” Nolan said. Officers said stealing the car was a crime of opportunity. Bond is charged with three counts of vehicular assault, evading arrest with a motor vehicle, and theft. THP said no one was injured in the crash. Nolan said she is unsure how she will get another car because she did not have insurance.
