Driver crashes into box truck after high speed chase with state troopers

CATOOSA, Okla. — A driver is in custody after leading authorities on a high speed chase that ended in a crash early Friday morning.

Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said speeds got over 140 miles per hour as the driver in a red Mustang tried to get away from them early this morning.

Troopers said the chase initially began on I-244 in Tulsa around 1:15 a.m. after the driver didn’t stop when they attempted to pull them over for speeding.

From there, troopers said the driver sped off toward Catoosa, eventually getting on to I-44.

They lost the car, but a short time later, they got a report of a car crashing into a box truck near 165th East Ave and I-44.

When troopers arrived on scene, they found the red Mustang stuck under a box truck.

The driver of the box truck was not injured, troopers said. And the driver of the mustang had minor injuries.

The driver was taken into custody.
