Car Chase Leaves Bystander In Serious Condition

Posted: Updated:

DORCHESTER CO., Md. – The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office says a car chase across Dorchester County put one man in the hospital in serious condition.

Police say back on June 20th, a deputy on routine patrol in Eldorado saw a red Kia Soul run a stop sign. The deputy, in an unmarked patrol car, reportedly activated its emergency equipment and attempted a traffic stop. That's when police say the chase begun.

During the chase, officials say the occupants were throwing items out of the vehicle as they fled. Authorities say one of the items later recovered was a Glock Model Handgun.

According to reports, the chase went through the northern part of Dorchester County and onto Route 307. The suspect vehicle reportedly rammed three separate Dorchester Sheriff's vehicles during the chase, causing damage to them.

Investigators say, while on Route 307, the suspect vehicle drove onto the shoulder and hit a bicyclist who had reportedly stopped riding and attempted to get off of the roadway.

Officials say the cyclist was treated initially by a Deputy Sheriff and then by Dorchester E.M.S. before he was then flown to Salisbury and later transferred to Baltimore where he is listed in serious condition.

According to reports, the chase ended a short while later when the suspect vehicle went off of the road. Two of the occupants allegedly fled on foot and were apprehended after a short foot chase.

Police say the driver has been identified as 20 year old Kevon Jamar Spencer of Cambridge. Authorities say he has been charged with attempted murder, first degree assault, four counts of second degree assault, four counts of reckless endangerment, and numerous traffic violations, among other charges.

Reports say he was ordered held on $250,000 bond.

An investigation is ongoing.
