Car flips, one injured, after early morning chase


SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – Authorities say a car flipped over into a ditch after an early morning chase, sending one person to the hospital.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office says it started after someone called to report a larceny in the area of 103rd South and Hydraulic shortly after 5 a.m.

The caller said he witnessed 3 males entering cars and that he was following them in his vehicle south on Broadway. He described the suspects’ vehicle as a blue Ford Fusion.

A deputy said he located and tried to stop the suspects’ vehicle as it was traveling south on Broadway. Instead of stopping, the deputy says the car went east on 71st.

The driver was unable to make the turn at Grove and the car rolled over in a ditch. The sheriff’s office says the driver fled east into the big ditch and has not been located.

The passengers were taken into custody. A female passenger was originally suspected to have serious injuries, but the sheriff’s office said her injuries turned out to be minor.
