OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Officials say one person is dead following a wild chase in Oklahoma City early Friday morning.

Authorities say it started around 1:50 a.m. on Friday when troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol attempted to pull over a vehicle for a traffic violation.

However, the driver refused to stop and led officers on a short, but wild, chase.

The chase came to an end near N.E. 23rd and Prospect when the driver crashed into a building.

Officials say the driver was killed in the crash and the passenger had to be extracted from the wreckage.

“There’s a little bit of concern for the structure itself, so the vehicle is inside the structure. That presents a different set of circumstances when one has to be extracted inside a building as well,” said Trooper Eric Foster, with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The driver was identified as 46-year-old Waymon Swanegan.

The passenger, 48-year-old Clayton Banks, was rushed to OU Medical Center in poor condition.

Troopers say they found a large amount of drugs inside the vehicle.
