A suspected shoplifter caused a crash in Northern Mississippi that put a man in the hospital.

Horn Lake police said it all started Wednesday inside this Schnucks Grocery store on Goodman Road when 40 year old Robert Case allegedly grabbed a woman's purse and ran out of the store.

Witnesses told police Case got into a car and sped out onto Goodman Road....that's when he ran a red light and as he crossed Goodman crashed into two other drivers here at the corner of Goodman and Horn Lake. 
 
"Currently he's charged with attempted strong armed robbery, petit larceny, reckless driving, resisting arrest, and failure to stop for a traffic control device, " Capt. Shannon Beshears of the Horn Lake Police department said.

One of the drivers Case hit is in critical condition at the Med in Memphis. 

Police said after the crash Case tried to run but police were able to catch him.  He is not in the custody of Horn Lake Police at the moment because he says he was also injured in the crash and is still in the hospital.
