A chase of a stolen pickup ended in a crash Friday morning in Little Rock.

A pursuit of a stolen City of Little Rock pickup ended with the truck crashing off the road and the driver running Friday morning.

Officials on the scene say investigators tracked the truck using GPS to the Alexander area but the driver refused to pull over.

The white pickup was north on Chicot Road in Little Rock when it ran off the right side of the street near Hillsboro Road, took out a chain link fence, and severed a power pole.

The driver reportedly ran into a nearby wooded area. Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said the man had not been located as of 9:50 a.m.

The vehicle, a Department of Public Works pickup, was stolen overnight in Little Rock. The perpetrator had removed some of the decals identifying it as a city truck by the time the pursuit started.

Saline County sheriff's deputies remained on the scene about 9 a.m. while Entergy crews worked to fix the downed lines.

I was annoyed that my power was out from 8:23AM until almost 4:00PM. Now I'm thankful that none of my family was on the road during this ridiculous stunt.
