Three fugitives are still on the run after they escaped from police in Ottumwa. KCCI's Laura Nichols has the video that showed exactly what happened. It all started with a routine traffic stop Tuesday night, and police say they never could have predicted what happened next. In this dash cam video you can see Ottumwa Police pull over a car full of people. One man immediately gets out ... And runs. An officer chases him in a foot pursuit. Seconds later a woman in the car takes off. The female driver gets out ...And then yet another man takes off running. WHEN YOU PERFORM A TRAFFIC STOP LIKE THIS YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN. It turns out nearly everyone in the car is a wanted criminal. The blonde woman -- is Beau Brandi Simpson -- she's wanted on felony charges and first degree arson. The bald man is Olen James Brown -- he's wanted on theft charges. The driver -- Deborah Peneueta -- is the only one police catch -- she's charged with driving while barred. The man who took off running first is a mystery man -- but police suspect he's wanted on charges too and that's why he jetted. After leading the officer on a foot chase the mystery man hops back in the car in the driver seat -- GET OUT OF THE CAR. Drawing his taser -- the officer can't persuade him to get out -- and you won't believe what happens next... I HEARD A BANG AND CAME OUTSIDE. Neighbor Brian Drummond heard the crash -- and came outside to find this. One car and two garages destroyed... pieces of debris everywhere. THERE'S TIRE TRACKS HERE THAT LOOK LIKE HE WAS SPINNING BACKWARDS. The man floored it -- before speeding down the alley -- and escaping police by mere feet. IF SOMEBODY WAS OUTSIDE THEY COULD HAVE GOTTEN VERY INJURED. WE'RE VERY FOTUNATE THAT NO ONE WAS HURT. Police need the public's help in finding Beau Brandi Simpson, Olen James Brown, and the mystery man. If you know who he is or their whereabouts call Ottumwa Police.
