WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A late night traffic stop quickly turned into a car chase and pursuit on foot Wichita Falls police.

Just after eleven Wednesday night, police attempted to pull over a truck for a traffic violation.

Officers say 34-year-old Reginald Jonathan Newton refused to stop, leading authorities on a brief chase that ended around 14th Street and Holliday Street when the driver and passenger jumped from the vehicle while it was still moving.

Officers chased the driver on foot, who was arrested a short time later for Evading Arrest and Evading Arrest with a Motor Vehicle.

Authorities say the truck continued rolling, hitting one vehicle before it came to a stop on a curb about two blocks away.

Police say the passenger was not arrested, but say she suffered minor injuries when the truck ran over her leg as she jumped from the truck.
