Reporter: Alex Zequeira

High drama on a local highway after a police stakeout of a murder suspect turns into a chase with a crashing conclusion.

The driver of that car is still on the loose Friday morning. He took police on a high speed chase causing three accidents.

Most of the people involved in that chase are under arrest. Also arrested is 21-year-old Keith Clemons, a man wanted for murder. It all started when Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies were staking out a house near Minor and Lawrence Road hoping to catch Clemons.

That's when things got out of hand. During the stake-out, deputies spotted a black Ford Explorer leave the house with several people inside. A check on the SUV's tag showed that it was reported stolen.

Deputies in unmarked cars began to tail the Ford truck, but when several marked vehicles showed up to help make the stop, the driver of the SUV took off.

The chase started on Lantana Road and continued onto I-95. The SUV cut three lanes of traffic attempting to get off the interstate at Forest Hill Boulevard slamming into three cars. Eventually, the truck came to a stop and everyone inside ran.

Deputies were eventually able to catch six people who were in the Ford Explorer during the chase. But the driver was able to escape.

Those six people are being held for questioning right now. As for Clemons, he wasn't in the car. Deputies actually went back to the house they were staking out earlier and found him there where they did arrest him.

Again, the driver of the SUV that tore through the streets of Palm Beach County Thursday night is still on the loose.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, please call Crime Stoppers at 1.800.458.TIPS.

Fortunately, the people who were in the three cars that were hit are ok and did not suffer any serious injuries.
