COFFEYVILLE, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a fleeing driver was killed when he went off the side of a Kansas road and struck multiple trees near the state’s southern border with Oklahoma.

The Kansas State Highway Patrol said 24-year-old Robert Jackson was being pursed by law enforcement around 11:30 p.m. Monday when the road went from pavement to gravel. That caused him to loose control of the pickup truck he was driving about 4 miles (6.44 kilometers) north of Coffeyville.

The crash log doesn’t say what started the pursuit.
