Suspect Runs Himself Over Following Chase In NW OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY - A pursuit suspect somehow managed to run himself over with his own car before being arrested by police, early Wednesday morning.
It happened just after 8:30 a.m. Oklahoma City police tell News 9 members of the gang unit attempted to pull a vehicle over at W. Park Pl. and N. Brauer Ave., in the area of NW 10th St. and N. Classen Blvd., but the driver refused to stop. A chase began, but not long after officers terminated the pursuit.
Apparently not aware that the officers had called off the chase, the suspect, identified as 30-year-old Ricky Jeffries, crashed his vehicle into a curb near NW 10th St. and N. Indiana Ave. and bailed out on foot. It was at this point that Jeffries was somehow struck by his own car. The blow from his vehicle wasn’t enough to stop him from continuing to run, however, but officers soon caught up and made the arrest.
Police say Jeffries was transported to a local hospital to be medically cleared before he can be taken to the Oklahoma County Jail, where he will be booked on complaints of Possession of a Firearm after a Felony Conviction, Attempting to Elude and various other traffic violations.
