Springfield Man Dies In Crash; Police Say Driver Was Attempting To Elude Traffic Stop


A Springfield man is dead after crashing his car late Wednesday after allegedly fleeing a traffic stop. 

 

Police say 18-year-old David Mims was spotted by a patrol car failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign.  Officers turned on their flashing lights to pull him over, but he sped off.  They attempted to follow him, but did not engage in a high-speed chase.  They say Mims ran stop signs and drove erratically until they lost sight of him. 

 

Moments later, dispatch received a call of a crash at 9th and Stanford.  Officers found that Mims’s vehicle had hit a tree.  He had to be extricated from the vehicle and was pronounced dead a short time later.  Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
