Chase Across the County Reaches Speeds of Over 100 mph

A high speed chase that traveled across the county shortly after 11 p.m. and lasted approximately 45 minutes Thursday night ended after multiple agencies joined the pursuit.

The chase went west bound primarily along Highway 64 and ended in Gore just past Carlile Street, west of the intersection of Highways 100 and  64. 

It's unclear at this time how or where the chase began but reportedly included numerous law enforcement officials and agencies including the Muldrow police, county deputies, OHP, and a game warden officer. Muskogee and Pafford EMS were also dispatched.

Speeds topped over 100 miles per hour and spike strips were eventually deployed to stop the alluding vehicle. A witness stated that the vehicle continued to travel for some distance on its  rim causing sparks to fly and an area fire department to be dispatched as a precaution.

The vehicle,  a white 2013 GMC chevy truck, allegedly ran at least one other vehicle off the road as it fled.

No information is available at this time regarding who was driving the pursued vehicle or why the chase began. The extent of injuries is also unknown and names of those involved have not been released. We will bring you more details as they become available.
