KSAL StaffDecember 21, 2015

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Authorities near Wichita say a man fatally stabbed himself in the neck and chest after leading sheriff’s deputies on a multi-county chase.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department says the suspect died roughly an hour after starting the chase near Wichita. His name had not been released as of Monday.

Authorities say that when a deputy tried to stop the suspect’s car about 9:45 a.m. Sunday for unspecified reasons, the driver refused to pull over.

The chase went into Wichita, then onto the Kansas Turnpike, at one point going northbound in the freeway’s southbound lanes.

After deputies forced the suspect’s car into a ditch, he stabbed himself.

Sumner County authorities are investigating the death.
