OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – A rollover crash that landed into a building was reported near Midtown Monday night.

According to KOCO, police chased a high-speed driver until they crashed and overturned into a commercial building at Northwest 10th Street and North Shartel Avenue.

A passenger in the vehicle had previously jumped out of the moving car and fled on foot. Authorities removed the driver after they crashed and took them to an area hospital for minor injuries.

They were then arrested on several charges and booked at Oklahoma City Detention Center. Police think they fled because the car was a reported stolen vehicle.
