The Nebraska State Patrol said that the Omaha Police Department's Able 1 was following a suspected stolen Chevrolet Silverado at 11:15 p.m. The vehicle had crossed state lines from Iowa into Nebraska.
Officers said Able 1 pilots led them to a home near 99th St. and Park Drive. They reportedly found the stolen vehicle but the driver in the Silverado sped up, driving through the yard and hitting a NSP trooper's cruiser before fleeing.
According to authorities, OPD set out stop sticks to slow down the Silverado. The stolen vehicle reportedly came to a stop near an apartment complex near 96th and Nina.
