Near Eads, a KCSO deputy deployed a portable tire deflator, known as Stop Sticks. While the deflator was successful, the vehicle continued east bound on Highway 287/96 for a short distance before running off the road, crashing through a fence and stopping.

Three juveniles attempted to flee, but were apprehended. Charges are pending in Cheyenne County.
