SHERIDAN, Wyo. - Two people fleeing from police crashed a Jeep on Interstate 90 and fled on foot near the Montana state line.
Police in both states were still looking for the pair on Monday.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol said a trooper tried to arrest William Holbert, 26, during a traffic stop on Sunday after learning that Holbert was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant for fraud in Wilmington, N.C.
Holbert struggled with the trooper and managed to get back into his car. He sped off, starting a chase that began on the Interstate, then went to county roads in Sheridan County. Authorities lost Holbert when he took his Jeep off road, but then spotted him again on a county road and followed him back onto northbound I-90.
Holbert crashed near the state line. He and a female passenger fled on foot.
The patrol said the Jeep had been reported stolen in West Virginia. A handgun was found in the Jeep, but authorities didn't know whether Holbert or his companion was armed.
