High Speed Chase Crosses the Red River

Posted: Updated:

Several charges are being filed against a man accused of leading a chase from Oklahoma to Texas.

The Texas Department of Public Safety told Newschannel 6 the Comanche Nation Police tried to pull the man over Monday night near their casino in Lawton. They believed the man was driving a stolen pickup. 

The driver would not stop. Law enforcement said the driver headed south on I-44, and reached speeds of nearly 100 miles per hour.

Texas DPS troopers set up spike strips at the Red River Bridge. The strips punctured the truck's tires, forcing the driver to stop in Burkburnett.

We are waiting to learn the driver's identity, and the exact charges filed against him.
