OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — Three people have been identified after a police chase led to an injury crash on Interstate 35 in northeast Oklahoma City, according to News9.

The rollover wreck occurred on the southbound interstate just south of Northeast Grand Boulevard, shortly after 9:00 p.m.

According to the Oklahoma City Patrol, officers in the area were trying to stop a driver in a stolen truck, which was seen traveling recklessly and forcing other vehicles off the roadway.

When troopers deployed a tactical maneuver, the fleeing driver attempted to evade, causing the truck to flip and eject two occupants.

A 22-year-old victim died as a result of their injuries, confirmed authorities.

Medics rushed a 26-year-old passenger to a local hospital in critical condition.

It was unclear whether the driver, 30, sustained any injuries, but they were taken into custody for investigation into first degree murder.
