Police are looking for a driver who led them on a short high-speed Tulsa chase early Tuesday in a stolen pickup.

Officers say it started when an officer ran a tag on 2003 Dodge Ram truck at about 3 a.m. and it came back as stolen.

Police say when the officer tried to pull the truck over, the driver took off, heading west from the 4400 block of East Archer.

Surveillance video shows the truck crashing into a fence after officers chased the driver for about a mile.

No one was inside when police walked up to the car.

The truck ran over two trees, went across the sidewalk then across the street before slamming into a fence.

Police said the chase could have ended worse.

“The truck was driving at pretty high speeds through the neighborhood. Fortunately, there was no traffic out and the vehicle had lost control,” Sergeant Brett Bilyeu said.

If you have any information, call police.
