Bixby Police say a man is dead tonight after a police chase.

Sgt. Andy Choate says BPD got a call from family members concerned about a suicidal relative.

The 19-year-old was AWOL from the Air Force. Police had been notified to be on the lookout for him when they spotted him at 131st and Sheridan driving eastbound at high speed.

When they tried to stop him he kept going eastbound.

They say he then intentionally drove head-on into a dump truck near 131st Street and South Mingo Road.

The airman died at the scene. The truck driver was not hurt.
