OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A wild chase led officers through several cities on Friday morning, and ended in a violent crash, and it was captured on video by our Oklahoma City affiliate KFOR.
Around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, officers attempted to pull over a maroon sedan near I-40 and Portland Ave.
However, the driver took off and refused to stop.
The chase led police through southwest Oklahoma City to Moore and even into Norman.
At some points during the chase, the driver reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.
When the chase reached Moore, a passenger in the vehicle jumped out of the moving car and surrendered to police.
As the chase reached Norman, police pulled back on the chase since they were getting into areas with heavier traffic.
Even though officers stopped chasing him, the driver continued to speed through red lights and stop signs.
In some spots, it appeared as though the driver was going to hit other vehicles during his run from the law.
Around 11 a.m., a Norman police officer picked up the pursuit and began chasing the suspect. Once the Norman officer became involved, the driver’s speeds picked up.
When officers attempted to stop him with stop sticks, he took a turn off of Hwy 9 and headed south.
A short time later, officers hit the vehicle with a PIT maneuver, which caused the vehicle to go airborne and roll several times. The driver was pulled from the window since the door was shut, and two other people were pulled from the vehicle.
So far, it is unclear exactly what sparked the chase.
