WINDSOR HEIGHTS, Iowa  --  A high-speed chase came to an end with a crash, injuries and an arrest in Windsor Heights on Wednesday afternoon.

Des Moines Police say it started when 20-year old Jordan Estermann from Des Moines was pulled over at E. 14th and I-235.  When officers tried to take Estermann into custody on outstanding warrants, he took off.  He lead police on a pursuit across the city to the intersection of 73rd Street and University Avenue when the suspect crashed into a minivan that 58 year-old Ismet Pandur was driving.  Police say Pandur of the van suffered minor injuries.  Estermann took off on foot but was taken into custody.

"I heard the crash and seen parts from both vehicles fly all over the place this is pretty severe,” witness Randy Blackford said, "Not very good I came down to make sure the guy in the van was alright".

Estermann is charged with eluding, and failing to have proof of insurance.
