One person has been arrested and another injured after a chase in Crowley Thursday afternoon.

According to Police Chief Jimmy Broussard, Acadia Parish Sheriff's Deputies and U.S. Marshals located a suspect wanted on warrants. A pursuit ensued at the Walmart on Oddfellows Road, which continued down North Avenue I.

As Crowley Police were heading on scene to assist, an officer turned on Sixth Street. The suspect's vehicle came at the officer in a wide turn, according to Chief Broussard, and because the suspect was heading directly towards the officer, the officer fired at the vehicle.

The vehicle then went across Parkerson Avenue, clipped a utility pole, and flipped completely.

The driver was apprehended immediately.

The passenger was ejected from the vehicle and transported to a local hospital. Her condition is currently unknown.

Acadia Parish Sheriff K.P. Gibson said his agency has been requested to investigate the pursuit and crash. As the investigation is ongoing, further details are not available at this time.
