GRANT COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A Garber teen crashed after eluding authorities in a 17-mile chase, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Daniel Alan Parks, 17, was taken to an Enid hospital where he is said to be stable with internal and leg injuries.

A trooper tried to pull Parks' 2003 Dodge pickup over on a county road just after midnight Saturday after the teen went outside his lane while making a turn. The "driver attempted to elude for 17.6 miles before losing control and striking a utility pole," the trooper said in his report.

The chase ended on County Road 1070, just outside Harper in Grant County.

Parks, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown 20 feet from the pickup. He had the odor of alcohol on his person, according to the report.

The trooper lists the cause of the wreck as DUI - alcohol.
