Wyoming police say a driver who allegedly led officers on a high-speed chase Sunday afternoon suffered significant injuries when he lost control and his vehicle rolled over.

Police said the chase began around 2:42 p.m. at Highway 61 and East Viking in downtown Wyoming when officers observed the vehicle allegedly passing cars on the shoulder at 60 miles per hour.


A check of the license plate number reportedly revealed an alert for failure to return the vehicle and a revoked driver's license.
