Another wild police chase in Greenfield early Friday morning started near 43rd and Morgan just before 4 a.m.

Police dash cam video shows the suspect blowing through red lights and speeding at nearly 100 miles per hour. 

"The suspect lost control due to the wet conditions and spun out into median area hit a guardrail," said Captain Ray Radakovich with the Greenfield Police Department. 

That crash happened near the stadium.

The suspect bailed out of the car, ran across lanes of traffic and leaped over the 20-foot freeway wall.

Police spent the next hour tracking the guy, but in the end, he got away.

Greenfield police said back in 2013, the department averaged nine police chases a year. Last year, the department had over a hundred.
