Stolen truck leads to chase, crash and kidnapping arrest

TULSA - Two men could be facing auto theft and kidnapping charges after an early morning chase ended with a crash.

It started just before 2:30 a.m. Thursday at the QuikTrip at Admiral and Delaware in north Tulsa.

Police say a man went inside the store, leaving the keys and a sleeping woman in the passenger seat of his pickup.

One of the suspects jumped behind the wheel.

When an officer who was nearby tried to stop them, police say the suspect attempted to ram his patrol car.

A pursuit ensued and ended about three miles later when the suspect crashed the pickup into a guardrail where Delaware curves near Harvard and the Broken Arrow Expressway.

Both suspects were taken into custody.  Their identities have not yet been released.

The woman suffered minor injuries.
