LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A police pursuit from Pahrump ended in Las Vegas early Sunday morning.

The Nye County Sheriff's Office shared the incident on its social media after 3 a.m.

Authorities say they attempted to make a traffic stop in Nye County with a driver who turned out to be a wanted fugitive and he ended up leading them on a 49-mile chase.

The driver eventually crashed into a fence in the Las Vegas valley where he was taken into custody, according to police.

No serious injuries were reported but a passenger in the vehicle was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The NCSO says more details will be released later in the week.
