A driver remains on the loose after he sent Guthrie police officers on an 11-minute car pursuit on the northern side of town Monday evening. The pursuit ended in the county near Highway 74C.
The suspect crashed a 2004 white, four-door Chevrolet into a dead-end sign and fence at the intersection of Broadway and County Road 76 at 8:41 p.m. The suspect then took off on foot and after a 90 minute search, officers were unable to spot the individual.
Guthrie officers were aided by a K9 unit from Edmond.
An officer went to make a routine traffic stop at Pine and Noble at approximately 8:31 p.m. for a brake light that was out.
The pursuit quickly moved to Walnut and toward Guthrie Upper Elementary School. The driver proceeded down Hillcrest to Pine before heading north on Highway 77 and turning onto Highway 74C. Once on 74C, the driver began traveling down dirt roads causing dust to be flown into the air and limiting the view of the officers following.
Finally, the suspect attempted to turn south on Broadway as he approached the dead-end at the intersection of County Rd 76. However, he lost control of the vehicle and rolled into the sign and fence before taking off on foot.
Speeds were clocked at over 100 m.p.h. and alcohol was later spotted inside the vehicle.
Despite not locating the individual, police are investigating several clues found inside the car.
