A Madison man was caught in a foot chase after going 100 mph on the Beltline and crashing into the back of a van Friday morning.

Madison police said Deontae M. Webster, 26, passed two detectives on the Beltline on the left side median next to the concrete barriers at 100 mph. He crashed into the back of a Badger Bus van near Verona Road at about 7:32 a.m.

The detectives chased Webster on foot until he was cornered in the stairwell of a building on Britta Parkway, police said. A large amount of cash and drugs were found in his car, according to the release.

The driver and a passenger in the van suffered non-life-threatening injuries. There were no children in the van.

The crash triggered two other crashes. No serious injuries were reported.

Webster was arrested on suspicion of second-degree reckless endangerment, operating while under the influence and on a parole hold.
