Suspect on the loose after high-speed chase ends in Utah

MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A man is on the loose after sending police on a high-speed chase that started in Mesa County and ended in Utah just past the border.

It started about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The Mesa County Sheriff's office says deputies tried to pull over a green Dodge for speeding about a mile from the Utah border on Interstate 70 and that's when the suspect took off.

They say just past the state line, the driver blew his tire, got out and fled on foot into the desert.
