BELLE PLAINE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas authorities say a suspect in at Texas homicide is hospitalized in Wichita with critical injuries and burns after a police pursuit in south-central Kansas.

Kansas Turnpike Authority Lt. John Lehnherr says a trooper saw a vehicle driven by 27-year-old Anthony Ford heading south on the turnpike Thursday near Belle Plaine.

Ford is a suspect in the stabbing death of a 23-year-old woman in Mansfield, Texas, on Sunday.

When troopers tried to stop Ford’s vehicle near Wellington, the driver fled. The chase reached speeds of 110 to 120 mph before Ford’s vehicle left the road, flipped onto its top and caught fire. Ford is under guard at a Wichita hospital while being treated for his injuries.

No one else was hurt.
