Norman police arrested a man Wednesday morning following a pursuit.

According to Norman police, at 7:45 a.m., officers responded to a request from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to look for a truck from which an all terrain vehicle had fallen from and was left in the middle of Interstate 35. A Norman police officer spotted the vehicle in the area of State Highway 9 and 24th Ave SW.

Police said when the officer attempted to contact the driver, he fled, leading the officer in a high speed pursuit. The officer provided the license plate number to police dispatchers who determined that the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Oklahoma City.

The suspect drove northbound on I-35, then left the roadway cutting across a field and onto Interstate Drive, police said. The driver lost control of the vehicle ending the pursuit when he struck a guard rail and embankment just south of W. Robinson St.
