Liberal Man Dies In High Speed Chase

Joe Denoyer - August 13, 2016 6:06 pm


The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Kansas man was killed when he crashed a stolen sport utility vehicle he was driving while leading police on a high speed chase in northwestern Oklahoma.

The OHP says 30-year-old Zachary Ramos of Liberal, Kansas, was dead at the scene of the crash Friday on a county road near Shattuck.

A police report says Ramos was leading Shattuck police and Ellis County deputies on a chase on U.S. Highway 283, then onto a county road. The report says Ramos lost control of the SUV and it overturned several times and crashed into a tree.

Ramos was thrown about 30 feet from the vehicle.

The OHP says the SUV had been reported stolen to Woodward police.
