DAVIS, Okla. (AP) – Interstate 35 in southern Oklahoma has reopened after being closed following a standoff with a driver who crashed while being chased by police.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the interstate reopened near Davis shortly after 7 a.m. after being shut down for about 3 1/2 hours Tuesday morning.

Police say the chase began about 2:30 a.m. in Norman when police tried to stop the vehicle for a traffic violation. The driver then led officers on the chase for about an hour before crashing the vehicle. The driver then refused to leave the wreckage for nearly two hours before finally surrendering about 6 a.m.

The driver’s name and condition were not immediately released.
