Authorities say the high-speed chase on Aug. 20 followed an armed robbery at a Belvidere cellphone store. Boone County authorities perused three suspects into Winnebago County, where they crashed into Williams' vehicle.

Two 19-year-old suspects and one 20-year-old suspect were arrested in connection to armed robbery and are being held at the Boone County Jail. It's unclear if they've been charged.
