SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – Chilling video shows a deputy narrowly avoid being hit by a high-speed pursuit suspect.
In the video obtained by KREM , Deputy Sky Ortiz is seen laying down spike strips during a Friday pursuit when Jorel Fultz comes barreling toward him. Ortiz jumps in his patrol car’s trunk to avoid being struck.
“Definitely just wanted to get to a safer location and get a little bit between me and him,” Ortiz told KREM. “Only thing I had at the time was the trunk.”
Police said they attempted to arrest Fultz on felony firearm charges when he fled. The suspect led them on a high-speed pursuit that ended with a K-9 apprehension. Fultz was transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. No serious injuries were reported.
