A Logan County sheriff's deputy began chasing two men when the suspects' car nearly crashed head-on into the deputy's cruiser.

The deputy was on patrol around 1 a.m. Thursday near Waterloo and Kelly when a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction nearly crashed into him. The deputy turned around and attempted to stop the car, but the driver refused to pull over and a pursuit began.

The chase wound through Edmond and finally ended when the suspects lost control on a curve on Memorial near Douglas. The cars crashed into some trees and brush on the side of the road.

The two men jumped out of the car and tried to run, but deputies from both Logan and Oklahoma counties quickly caught them.

Paramedics examined the suspects to make sure they were all right. They didn't have any serious injuries, so police arrested them and booked them into the Logan County jail.

The men have been identified as Jared Anderson, 26, and Dennis Robinson, 27. They were booked for attempting to elude police and reckless driving.

Deputies say the two men may have run from police because they both had warrants out for their arrest and were driving with suspended licenses.
