Wichita Falls Police are searching for a man they say was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed at the entrance of Lucy Park after they say he ran from the scene.

Officers say a Chevrolet Tahoe crashed into a telephone pole at the corner of Fillmore Street and Terrace Avenue just before 2 p.m. Friday afternoon, and that caused the pole to come crashing down and land on top of the SUV.

Authorities say the driver and a passenger ran from the scene while a female passenger waited for police to arrive.

The driver was later found in the neighborhood by Lucy Park and police say when he spotted them he took off running. Officers caught up with the man and arrested him, meanwhile, they’re still searching for the other male, who ran from the scene.

No word on what caused the driver to crash the Tahoe.
