Before you head out the door, we like to catch you up with what happened while you were sleeping.

Residents of south Wichita may have noticed a lot of sirens and police cars as a man led officers on a chase before crashing his car, sparking a 40-minute search.

The chase began about 11:55 p.m. near Orient and Martinson, just northwest of Harry and Seneca. Emergency dispatchers say the suspect wrecked his car a few minutes later in a construction zone on Seneca near South High School. The suspect then ran from the scene of the crash.

He was caught about 12:40 a.m. near in the 3400 block of South Southwood Court, also near South High School.
