I'm Michelle Franzen -- New York this is an ABC news digital special report. It began a gas station just outside Denver and took Colorado cops on a high speed chase. That lasted nearly an hour in that time the suspect hijacked two different vehicles -- tried a third time. The first of van police say had a four year old boy inside triggering an AMBER Alert. You can see that car driving it's often that area. We're joined now live from Denver by ABC's Clayton -- -- Clayton first of all that first to ban the red one had a child on board. Here we can see if we can show some video the suspect ditches it for another right. Do we know -- intended to take the vehicle with that child or child inside. You know at this point Michelle we don't know whether he knew. Or intended to kidnap that child or whether it was just by chance he was trying to steal -- vehicle that. At a gas station and and the child just happen to be inside police are sorting all of that out right now. So this started at a gas station give us an idea of where that this had occurred and how it went down. Sure so this started at a gas station in long -- Colorado which is roughly an hour north of Denver about fifty or sixty miles. And the suspect came driving down I 25 the big interstate that -- -- Colorado north the south. Came south towards Denver and then headed over towards the -- north east portion of the city. And ended up coming down. -- whole road by called C 470 now along the way it was driving. As you saw was carjacking other drivers. Got in another vehicle at one point was driving on the wrong side of the road on his terrifying to watch you saw him coming head on towards all kinds of traffic. And many headed south past the Denver International Airport. South west the southeast of the city pardon to an area -- -- Douglas County called lone tree now.

Annie he tried to -- several vehicles -- the last time though he was less successful Clayton at what point how many cop cars and choppers were honest. On the scene -- looking for him. It had to be it had to be dozens -- -- talking about law enforcement from long -- Colorado state patrol. Local sheriff's departments that were there were dozens of officers that were closing in on -- when he finally. Crashed into another car and and got out on foot. China shed as close as he went one thing we should mention also is that at one point along the way -- Colorado state patrol. Trooper. Was actually hit and injured we believe this trooper was trying to lay down some of those spike strips. In front of the suspect's vehicle to puncture his tires and stop the vehicle at some point during that chase. This trooper was hits and is now in hospital with what we understand are pretty serious injuries. Luckily it it didn't end with anyone getting hurt as far as we know and immunities crashes but it could have been. A lot worse CL a lot of close -- that lets take you to the ending of this where he begins to sort of run on foot. And he's flee fleeing on foot he's Ronnie -- and that he takes his jacket off. And is thinking about scaling up -- Coming up here shortly and just finally running out of energy -- and south and finally. Police are able to catch up with him we're gonna watch that play out as you describe what happens next. Yeah yeah yeah you can imagine I'm sure even though he was running from the police I'm -- his adrenaline level was. Was pretty high at that point having been pursued for an hour and then crashing into another vehicle it seemed like he was may -- Trying to to shed those close as a way to that maybe changes description but. At that point there were just too many officers nearby he. Made a run at one point taking a -- completely off made a run toward that fence and looked like he was trying to climate but the officers -- were right behind him with their guns drawn. And three or four of them were able to. Cornered him right up against that fence and that it -- -- appear that he put up a fight at that point got on the ground and they were able to get in there and it's in handcuffs on -- at that point the whole thing was over and now it's just sorting out all the details because. This took place like we said over -- over sixty miles or so multiple cars were hit there were multiple crime scenes along the way so it's going to be a lot to sort out.
