The Oklahoma City Police Department and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a suspect fled on foot after crashing his vehicle following a pursuit Saturday near Interstate 35 and Northeast 16th Street. 

Police said the suspect took off after giving officers his license and insurance during a traffic stop. 

That's when they said a pursuit began.

Authorities said the suspect jumped out of his moving vehicle in front of Edwards Elementary School. 

The suspect then fled on foot towards I-35. Police said it is unclear at this time if the suspect made it across the highway. 

Authorities said a large amount of drugs, including marijuana, heroin and a white powdered substance, were found in the vehicle. 

Both the Oklahoma City police and OHP are actively searching for the suspect.
