PONTOTOC COUNTY, Okla. -- A stolen truck led officers on a 50-mile pursuit through three counties. Officials say the chase happened just after three o’clock Monday morning.
A Ponotoc County Sheriff's deputy responded to a white Chevrolet pickup that was driving recklessly on State Highway 3-W.
Stoney Gene Ward, 37, of Ada, refused to pull over and increased his speed to more than 100 miles per hour.
Ward led Ponotoc County Sheriff’s deputies, along with other agencies, into Seminole County, where officers placed stop sticks in the road where he later crashed.
Ward was airlifted to OU Medical Center with massive injuries. He is listed in critical condition.
Upon recovery, Ward faces several felony and misdemeanor charges.
