Tribal Police said it all started near an apartment complex near 71st and South 92nd East Avenue when they tried to pull over a person of interest related to a different incident that police had been looking into. 

That’s when the pursuit started which took tribal police down 71st and 169 and then finally east down 51st where the suspects SUV hit a car and rolled over. 

The suspect who was in that SUV and another person who was in the car were both taken to the hospital.
