(KSHB) Missouri prosecutors have charged 22-year-old Andrew Stark with several charges including involuntary manslaughter and second degree assault after a fatal car collision on Monday.
Independence Police said they chased Stark because of careless driving.
Stark's Saab ended up colliding into 35-year-old Jason Lewis' car at the intersection of 23rd and Hardesty in Kansas City.
Dashcam footage released by Independence Police show the officer disengaged from the chase moments before the crash because he felt it was becoming too dangerous.
