Suspect on the Loose After High Speed Chase

One woman is behind bars and another suspect is on the loose after a car chase in Wichita Falls.

Wichita County Sheriff’s said it all started around 5:40p.m. Wednesday night on Martin Luther King Blvd.  They said officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department initiated a traffic stop, but the driver took off towards Old Iowa Park Road.  Authorities said the driver then headed towards Iowa Park reaching speeds up to 95 mph. 

During the initial pursuit, authorities could tell there was a female, who was the driver, and a black male, who was the passenger.  While the suspects were in Iowa Park, the Wichita Falls Police Units were called off the pursuit.  This is when authorities believe the male passenger was dropped off somewhere.

The Wichita County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa Park Police Department tried to initiate a pit maneuver.  However, the female driver did not stop and reached speeds up to 120 mph while heading back to Wichita Falls.  The driver did hit the unit during this first attempt, but she got away.

Then the driver slowed down in front of United on Old Iowa Park Road.  She was traveling up to 80mph while going under Central Freeway bridge.  This is when the second attempt for a pit maneuver was done.

Wichita Falls Police were able to successfully do the pit maneuver behind the Casa Mana building.  This is where Old Iowa Park Road continues and Scott Street begins.

The driver, 26-year-old Kyonda Davis, was arrested.  Authorities said the car was stolen and 40 caliber bullets were found inside the vehicle.  However, no pistol was found.  Officials also found meth inside the vehicle.

Davis has been charged with Evading Arrest and Possession of a Controlled Substance.

If you know where the other suspect is, call Crime Stoppers.  The number is (940) 322-9888.
