The McClain County Sheriff’s Department reported deputies were involved in a pursuit last Friday morning.

The pursuit, that started just before 2 a.m. in the northern part of McClain County, went north into Cleveland County where the suspect tried to run over a deputy.

The deputy fired his duty weapon striking the vehicle, but the suspect continued northbound on I-35 to the I-240 area before turning around and heading back south on I-35.

McClain County Deputies were joined by Norman Police and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol in the pursuit.

OHP Troopers conducted the TVI (Tactical Vehicle Intervention) maneuver at I-35 and 12th St. in Moore city limits causing the vehicle to hit the center meridian retaining wall.

The suspect exited the vehicle and started to flee the scene. The suspect was struck by a semi-tractor trailer and transported to a nearby hospital.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations has taken the lead on the case.
