A chase involving Callaway County deputies ended with a crash in Fulton on Monday and the arrest of two people.

The crash happened on Bluff Street between Northeast 8th and 10th streets.

Kyle Green, of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, wrote in an email that Callaway County deputies were chasing a vehicle with two people who had felony warrants. Green said both people were arrested. He said the man who was driving did not have injuries, but the woman was injured and brought to an area hospital.

The Callaway County Sheriff’s Office wrote on its social media that Christopher and Victoria Voiles, of Kokomo, Indiana, were wanted on a warrant from Indiana on accusations of first-degree robbery with physical injury. The post also states that the vehicle was “linked to a burglary at a church in Cape Girardeau County on June 3, 2024.”

The sheriff's office wrote that the Voiles' vehicle was on Highway 54 near New Bloomfield at 12:55 p.m. Monday and that deputies were set up near Route H in Fulton.

Christopher Voiles and Victoria Voiles were listed on the Callaway County Jail roster on Monday afternoon. The jail roster says they are both accused of resisting arrest by fleeing.

"Initially, the vehicle stopped, and the female driver switched seats with the male driver, who then fled from deputies on State Road H to State Road F in a green Chevrolet Colorado," the post reads. "The vehicle continued into Fulton, where deputies pursued it. The vehicle struck a Missouri State Highway Patrol car, which was not involved in the pursuit, at the corner of East 8th Street and Bluff Street, and collided with two other vehicles. No injuries were reported in any of the crashes."

The Fulton Police Department wrote on its social media on 1:43 p.m. that emergency crews were responding to a rollover crash. FPD also wrote that the road would be closed “for an extended period” while MSHP investigates.  

Deputies had to pull the couple out from the vehicle, which was flipped over. Children near the street who were selling lemonade had to run from the rolling vehicle to avoid being hit.

Andrew Hopkins, the parent of the children, said they made it out of harm's way.

"We started shuffling them back over into the yard away from the street, and no sooner than when they got into the grass over here the impact happened and started flipping down the road debris flying everywhere... I'm thankful that no one lost their lives today. It could've been so much worse than it is," Hopkins said.

Another Fulton resident, Owen Gray, said he was on the way home from a store when he saw the crash and the arrest. He called the situation "insane" and added that these type of situations are not common in the area.

 "This is something that happens in movies, you know? It's not really something that comes to the small town like this, you know? Luckily everyone was able to, you know, get to the right, but it was still pretty insane," Gray said.
