EDMOND — A pursuit that began in Logan County and passed through Edmond ended when the suspect vehicle crashed near the Turner Turnpike and Arcadia Lake, police said.

Thursday morning, a deputy with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol near Waterloo and Kelly when he was nearly struck head on by a vehicle traveling in the opposing direction, Capt. Richard Stephens said.

“The deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle and a pursuit ensued,” Stephens said.

Stephens said the suspect vehicle, a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria, fled southbound into Oklahoma County on Kelly. The deputy broadcast the details of the pursuit, and requested officers from the Edmond Police Department and the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, Stephens said.

In Edmond, the suspect vehicle continued southbound on Kelly and turned east on Memorial Road, Stephens said. The suspect vehicle lost control at a curve on Memorial Road near Douglas, leaving the roadway and crashing into a thicket of small trees and brush, he said.

Stephens said the Logan County deputy, assisted at that time by deputies from the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office, quickly apprehended two men fleeing from the vehicle.

At this time the only identifiable reason the two men fled from police appears to be a suspended driver’s license and warrants, Stephens said.

Both suspects and deputies received non-serious superficial cuts and abrasions from the underbrush in the area, Stephens said. The suspects were medically cleared at a local hospital prior to being booked into the Logan County jail, Stephens said.

Stephens said the suspects, Jared Caden Anderson, 26, and Dennis Leroy Robinson, 28, were arrested on complaints of attempting to elude police and reckless driving. | 341-2121, ext. 108
