Posted at 12:15 PM, Dec 07, 2018

(KFOR/NBC News) A wild chase led Oklahoma officers through several cities Friday morning before ending in a violent crash.

Around 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Oklahoma City officers attempted to pull over a maroon sedan near I-40 and Portland Ave.

The driver refused to stop and took off.

The chase led police through southwest Oklahoma City to Moore and even into Norman.

At some points during the chase, the driver reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

When the chase reached Moore, a passenger in the vehicle jumped out of the moving car and surrendered to police.

Even though officers stopped chasing him, the driver continued to speed through red lights and stop signs.

Around 11 a.m., a Norman police officer picked up the pursuit and began chasing the suspect. Once the Norman officer became involved, the driver’s speeds picked up.
