BIG SPRINGS, Kan. (WIBW)- Authorities from Jefferson and Douglas counties, as well as the Kansas Highway Patrol, are investigating after a pursuit led to a crash near Big Springs Thursday morning.

According to KHP, the chase began when a trooper tried to stop a truck that was reported stolen at E 2100 Road.. KHP says the driver, who was identified as Robyn Henderson, led authorities on a chase for about 10 to 15 minutes, at speeds only slightly above the limit.

The chase, which went through residential properties, continued east on Highway 40 until Henderson tried to turn left onto East 200 Road and lost control of the truck. The Ford F250 Super Duty hit a concrete bridge and flipped, coming to a rest on its roof.

They say the pickup truck she was driving was reported stolen, and the trailer she was towing behind it may have also been stolen.

Henderso, 27, was taken to a Topeka-area hospital with minor injuries. KHP says she may have a warrant out for her arrest.

No one else was hurt in the wreck, and no other vehicles were damaged.

Douglas County deputies came to assist at the scene, along with Highway Patrol troopers.
