URBANDALE, Iowa — A Wisconsin man is behind bars in Polk County after leading Urbandale police on a high-speed chase that ended in someone’s front yard Wednesday night.
Twenty-three-year-old Zachary Senger faces charges of eluding, OWI, open container and several traffic violations. Police say he was also wanted on a probation violation out of Wisconsin, related to a sex abuse conviction.
Sgt. Gary Lang with the Urbandale Police Department says the incident began around 6:11 p.m. when they received a call from someone who said they were being followed by a reckless driver.
Officers pursued the reckless driver, Senger, who hit a DART bus at the intersection of Parkview Drive and Meredith Drive. The car spun out into the front yard of a home.
Senger was taken into custody. Police say they don’t know why he was in the area.
The driver of the DART bus was treated on the scene for minor injuries.
