BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities say a police chase that began in suburban Omaha and wound south through southwest Iowa ended with a crash and the arrests of two people.

Bellevue police investigating a reported drive-by shooting Tuesday night say a man in a vehicle fired at officers early Wednesday and then fled into Iowa. None of the officers was hit.

Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig says an Iowa trooper intending to join the chase crashed his cruiser near Hamburg and was flown to an Omaha hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Ludwig identified him as Trooper Dillon Malone.

Ludwig says the vehicle being pursued crashed in northwest Missouri, and two occupants were arrested. The pair’s names haven’t been released.
