An armed suspect was taken into custody after a dangerous chase came to an end following a crash in southeast Oklahoma City.

Authorities said the chase began in Spencer on a reported ADW suspect.

The suspect, driving in a dark green SUV, travelled at a high rate of speed across Interstate 35.

Authorities appeared to have the suspect stopped at one point during the chase, but he was able to evade them and continue on briefly before slamming into a red pickup truck at the intersection of Southeast 44th and High.

"After we got him to stop he was able to get the vehicle rolling again and rammed several other law enforcement vehicles in an attempt to get away," said Trooper Eric Foster with Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
