OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A high-speed chase ended in an early morning crash in eastern Oklahoma County.

Officials say the chase began when Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputies attempted to pull over a vehicle, but the driver sped off.

The driver led deputies on a chase with speeds reaching 100 miles per hour.

The suspect eventually lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a power pole near Britton and Westminster.

Officials say the suspect was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, but will then be taken to the Oklahoma County Jail.

For the past several days, OG&E crews have been busy trying to restore power to hundreds of thousands of residents throughout the city. Crews were called to the scene to check out the power pole, but they say it didn’t suffer any major damage.
