Police say the car continued to drive making it's way near Newbo where it was driving slow enough they could determine there was a male driving, a female in the passenger seat and another male in the back seat. 

The car continued to drive, ending up on Mt. Vernon Road.

Officers put stop sticks on the street outside of the Mt. Vernon Road Hy-Vee successfully flattening the front right tire of the car. 

At this point the car slowed to 30 mph but still continued to drive. 

Police say Simmons eventually pulled over in the 5500 block of Mt. Vernon Road SE.
