(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A man who was arrested after a high-speed chase in midtown St. Joseph in a stolen vehicle last summer was sentenced to prison.

Andre Dwight Jones, 47, was sentenced to six years in prison for resisting arrest by fleeing.

According to court documents, Jones was behind the wheel of a stolen car around 9:30 p.m. on August 3, 2018. Jones fled from officers after they spotted him driving in the area of 25th and Olive.

A probable cause statement shows Jones was speeding at more than 70 mph during the chase in the city.

The chase ended after Jones crashed the car into a utility pole. Jones and two others in the car were injured and taken to the hospital.

Court records show Jones has a prior criminal history including robbery, assault, armed criminal action, burglary and receiving stolen property.

We are waking up to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures into the middle to upper 60s this Monday morning. Monday is looking to be another dry & quiet day for us with partly sunny skies skies. Showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to develop to our south near Kansas City and the I-70 corridor so we can't rule out a slim chance for a stray shower for us. Highs are going to be a few degrees below average in the lower 80s.
