A chase that began early this (Tuesday) morning following a traffic stop in Pottawattamie County, ended in Mills County with the suspect getting away. The Pott. County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy tried to stop a vehicle for speeding 84 in a 55-mile per hour zone near Macedonia at around 2-a.m., but the vehicle sped-off.
The chase ended with the vehicle crashing into a field off of Highway 34 near Emerson, in Mills County, but not before Mills County authorities deployed stop-sticks, which hit the vehicle but didn’t puncture the tires as intended. After the vehicle crashed, a Red Oak Police k-9 unit and Omaha Police helicopter Able 1 attempted to locate the driver of the vehicle, but were unable to do so.
The vehicle had Kansas license plates, but the VIN came back to a vehicle stolen out of Oklahoma. No other information is currently available.
