Bismarck police are seeking a suspect who fled from officers Saturday afternoon after he crashed his pickup in the yard of 1310 N. 16th St.

Police report the suspect fled officers in another jurisdiction before ditching his pickup in a yard and fleeing on foot.

The man, who remains at large, was involved in a vehicle pursuit on Highway 83, north of Bismarck, according to a news release from the Bismarck Police Department.

Deputies with the Burleigh County Sheriff's Department had been pursuing the suspect's vehicle, but stopped once it entered the vicinity of Bismarck. A North Dakota Highway Patrol plane followed the fleeing vehicle, as the driver continued to drive "erratically," according to police.

Police said the suspect ran a stop sign while driving westbound on Hanaford Avenue, crossing North 16th Street. A Bismarck woman driving northbound hit the suspect's vehicle. She was transported to a local hospital to be treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Burleigh County Sheriff's deputies and North Dakota Highway Patrol canine officers tracked the suspect until the trail was lost.

Police described the suspect as a tall Native American man in his 30s, with a shaved head and visible tattoos. He is not considered to be an immediate threat to the public at this time. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the police.
