A Ponca City ambulance and a medical evacuation helicopter responded to a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 177 in Noble County, near the Sooner Power Plant.
The incident began when a Kay County deputy attempted to make a felony warrant stop of the vehicle near Second Street and Otoe Avenue in Ponca City. Rather than stopping, the driver took off with the deputy in pursuit. The deputy later backed off.
An officer from the Otoe-Missouria Police Department reported the driver passed their station at an extremely high rate of speed.
The driver then lost control of the vehicle and hit a culvert. Passersby stated debris was scattered in a very large area and the vehicle was nearly unrecognizable.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the accident and is continuing its investigation.
The male driver was taken by ambulance to Alliance Health in Ponca City. A female passenger was transported by helicopter.
No names or conditions have been released while the investigation continues.
