CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming authorities say they have arrested a fugitive from Missouri after shooting at and ramming the man’s vehicle as it traveled the wrong direction on the highway.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1XkWwbB ) that authorities say a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper fired on the car and three law enforcement vehicles rammed it during a high-speed chase on Interstate 25 on Wednesday.

Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation Director Steve Woodson says a female passenger in the vehicle was shot in the leg and has been treated for non-life-threatening injuries. He says the male driver was treated for minor injuries and taken into custody. He is wanted on a parole violation in Missouri.

A trooper and his K-9 partner were hurt while ramming the vehicle and are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
