COLBY, Kan. (AP) Authorities are trying to identify a man who was arrested after leading officers on a 72-mile chase through northwestern Kansas.
The Associated Press reports the chase started Thursday morning after a state trooper tried to stop the man on Interstate 70 about 25 miles west of Colby.
The driver dodged traffic spikes as he led officers on several highways between Colby and Oakley at speeds that reached 130 mph.
Authorities said the man briefly drove along railroad tracks in Colby and onto a street where he became boxed in by trees. He abandoned the car and was found under a pickup truck.
Officers hoped to identify the man from his fingerprints because he won't provide his name.
