High speed chase in Shreveport

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – An Ark-La-Tex man tried to get away from police after a high speed chase on the streets of Shreveport this morning.

An officer spotted the car, which had been reported stolen.

It came to an end in a ditch along Hilry Huckaby near Lakeshore Drive.

That's where officers found the wrecked Crown Victoria, but the suspect wasn't inside.

Instead police say he ran into the woods.

"Officers at this time were unable to locate him due to the thickness of the woods," says Sgt. Bill Goodin with Shreveport Police. "Officers told me it was extremely thick, hard to travel through, and so at this time he is still at large.  However, officers are working on positively identifying him.  They have a very good lead in that."

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts or the case can call Crimestoppers at (318) 673-7373.
