An overnight police chase ended in a crash in southwest Oklahoma City, authorities said.

The chase started about 2:50 a.m. Thursday near SE 38 and Lindsay Avenue when a vehicle with a flat tire would not pull over to an Oklahoma City police officer initiating a traffic stop. 

During the pursuit, shots were fired at the officer's vehicle.

Oklahoma City police requested assistance from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol about 3 a.m. near SW 59 and May Avenue.

Troopers think the driver opened fire on the trooper's vehicle and hit it. The trooper returned gunfire and injured the driver, troopers said.

The fleeing vehicle rolled over after troopers used a tactical maneuver to end the chase near SW 54 and MacArthur Boulevard. 

Two occupants in the fleeing vehicle were ejected from the vehicle and were taken to a local hospital by paramedics. 

The female passenger is in critical condition, and the male driver is in good condition, troopers said.

Oklahoma City police did not fire their weapons in this incident, troopers said.

Troopers identified the driver as Patrick Smith, 32, of Lawton. He has since been released from the hospital and has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on multiple complaints including Aggravated Attempting To Elude, Shooting With Intent To Kill and Assault With A Deadly Weapon. 

The trooper involved in the shooting has not been identified and has been placed on paid administrative leave.
