As we sat in the studio doing our morning show, we saw a massive police force speeding up Brady Street.

It appears a police chase ended at the intersection of Brady and Locust street in the form of a collision between a vehicle and a Davenport Police SUV. The scene was active around 9:40am.

Dozens of Davenport Police and Iowa State Patrol officers could be seen in the area, as far west as Harrison Street. The two left lanes of Brady Street at Locust Street are currently closed as the investigation is underway.

Part of Locust Street is also blocked off in the Eastbound lanes at the intersection.

Injuries are not currently known, but multiple ambulances were seen at the scene of the collision.

It's not clear from the scene what exactly happened, but we will update as soon as we find out.

Hotel Davenport Demolition

The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.

According to the Quad Cities times, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.

It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.

I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.
