NEWTON, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say at least four police vehicles have been damaged during a chase of a stolen car that began in Marshall County.

Sgt. Nathan Ludwig of the Iowa State Patrol says the chase started around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday when a sheriff’s deputy spotted a stolen car. Other officers joined the pursuit as the car headed south into Jasper County. Ludwig says the pursuing police cruisers collided or were otherwise damaged when the car driver slammed on his brakes. The officers suffered minor injuries.

Authorities say 29-year-old Kirk Williams was taken into custody. He’s charged with theft, eluding and other crimes. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
