WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Emergency crews are searching a pond in south Wichita for a man who apparently jumped in while running from police.

Wichita police Lt. Chris Halloran says officers tried to stop the man's car for traffic violations about 2 a.m. Friday but he drove off. Eventually the car crashed through a chain link fence and the driver got out. Police believe he jumped into the pond.

There has been no sign of the man since then.

Two other people in the car during the chase were taken into custody.
