A car was cut in half Monday night after flying off an embankment in University City in what may have involved a pursuit and a hit-and-run with a second vehicle.
The crash shut down southbound Genesee Avenue for a short time.
Witnesses told 10News that the car that went over the embankment was being chased by a second vehicle before the accident. That second car fled the scene.
The engine and the front wheels broke off of the vehicle that was being chased after the driver hit a stoplight pole. Police said the driver of the vehicle was found outside of the vehicle and was rushed to the hospital.
