CROMWELL, Okla. (AP) – A 44-year-old man has died following a high-speed pursuit with an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper.

Troopers say Alexander Larmon of Sapulpa was pronounced dead at the scene of Sunday’s crash on Interstate 40 about three miles north of Cromwell in Seminole County.

The patrol says Larmon’s pickup truck was traveling eastbound on I-40 at a high rate of speed in an attempt to elude 26-year-old Trooper Jonathan Earls of Okemah shortly after midnight.

Troopers say Earls executed a tactical vehicle intervention maneuver to stop the vehicle when the pickup lost control, left the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its top.

The victim was ejected about 10 feet from where the vehicle came to a stop. Troopers say the victim smelled of alcohol and was not wearing a seatbelt.
