Jefferson City man leads deputy on chase, crashes car


A Jefferson City man was flown to the hospital after a police chase ended in a crash Saturday.

It happened around 4:20 p.m. at Route D and Highway 50.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a Cole County deputy was chasing Matthew Haulenbeek, 25, on Route D.

Capt. John Wheeler with the Cole County Sheriff’s Department told ABC 17 News the chase started because Haulenbeek had an active probation and parole warrant out of Moniteau County and his driver’s license was suspended.

Haulenbeek then hit another car on Route D that was trying to turn onto Highway 50. Haulenbeek’s car caught on fire after the crash, according to Wheeler. Deputies pulled Haulenbeek out of his car and performed CPR until medics arrived.

Emergency crews flew Haulenbeek to University Hopsital in serious condition.

Sunday, University Hospital officials told ABC 17 News Haulenbeek was still in the hospital in fair condition.

No one in the other car was hurt.
