Suspect escapes after overnight police chase in Sand Springs ends with crash

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - Sand Springs police dealt with a chase and its aftermath in the early morning hours of Friday morning.

Around 12:30 a.m. officers attempted to pull over a pickup truck matching the description of one reported stolen.  Police say the driver wouldn't pull over and a chase ensued.

That chase ended on West 51st Street South and South 157th West Avenue when the driver lost control and crashed into a grove of trees.

At that moment, the suspect jumped out of the truck and took off, police say.

Officers searched for a while, even by air. A couple hours later, that search was called off for the night.

Police don't believe the person who took off poses a big risk to public safety.
