A fleeing motorist has been arrested after driving into the scene of a Hutchinson death investigation.

Reno County Sheriff's Capt. Steve Lutz says officers began pursuing the motorist late Thursday afternoon after he was spotted in a possibly stolen pickup truck.

The Hutchinson News reports that officers considered ending the chase before the motorist drove into the coned-off death-investigation scene. The motorist was captured after fleeing on foot.

The suspect was wanted in connection to the September abduction of a Hutchinson man who was taken to Salina.

Authorities were gathered at the scene of the man's capture to investigate a house fire that apparently killed a woman in her 70s. The cause of death hasn't been released, but Hutchinson Fire Chief Kim Forbes says the woman likely died of smoke inhalation.
