The Cloud County Sheriff’s Office has released details into their search for a Salina man Tuesday, October 23rd who fled from the Cloud County Courthouse in Concordia, leading law enforcement on high-speed chase into Clay County, ending in a one-vehicle rollover accident on K-15 Highway.
The Cloud County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Concordia Police Department in their search for Brett Trimble, 33 of Salina, who, while being placed into custody, was able to escape on foot Tuesday. Trimble was seen getting into a 2016 Ford Fusion at 6th and Broadway Streets in Concordia.
At approximately 5:25 pm, a Sheriff’s Deputy located the vehicle and attempted to apprehend Trimble in the Sonic parking lot. Trimble immediately fled, driving southbound on US Highway 81. The pursuit continued southbound before Trimble turned eastbound onto US Highway 24.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Clay Center Police Department assisted by deploying tire deflation devices at three different locations. Two of these deployments were successful, causing Trimble’s vehicle to leave the roadway to the west on K-15 Highway 1/4th of a mile north of 13th Road, striking a guard rail and overturning, before coming to a rest in the west ditch facing west.
Trimble, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, was transported by Clay County EMS to the Clay County Medical Center for treatment.
