GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a central Kansas police chase ended after a driver hit a stop sign and then a deer.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the chase started early Wednesday when a Barton County sheriff’s deputy tried to pull over a car with a broken light near Great Bend. The sheriff’s office says the car’s driver lost control in the southern part of the county, where he struck a stop sign.

Sheriff Brian Bellendir said video of the chase later showed the car hitting the third of four deer that were crossing a road. The car continued a few more miles before stopping, likely because of engine failure or a ruptured radiator.
