• Daily Leader staff report
Around 1:30 a.m. Friday, a Seward County Sheriff’s Deputy tried to pull over a black 4-door sedan for a traffic violation when the driver decided he would rather flee than stop. 
According Seward County Undersheriff Gene Austin, the man was pursued until the driver turned west on Hickory Street and was allegedly driving too fast to negotiate the dead end intersection at Jordan Avenue. The car then struck a pickup and slid into a van parked in the driveway at 544 South Jordan and came to rest between the van and the house.
The man, who’s identity the sheriff’s department will not release until after his first appearance in court Monday, was arrested and charged with numerous traffic violations incurred during the pursuit. Austin did not have the information readily available Friday on how long the pursuit lasted before the crash.
Friday afternoon, people were picking up debris and repairing damages at the house that was struck by the suspect.
