Texas Murder Suspect Critically Injured in Turnpike Pursuit



     WICHITA, Kan.  -  A murder suspect wanted in Texas is under guard at a Wichita hospital with critical injuries and burns after crashing his vehicle Thursday afternoon during a pursuit in south-central Kansas.
     Lt. John Lehnherr with the Kansas Turnpike Authority says troopers were on the lookout for a black Pontiac Grand Am believed to be driven by Anthony Ford, 27, who is wanted in connection to the stabbing death of a Mansfeld, Texas woman.
     Troopers spotted the vehicle around 2:00 p.m. Thursday heading southbound on the turnpike near Belle Plaine.  Lehnherr said troopers attempted to stop the car near Wellington, but the driver fled, reaching speeds of 110 to 120 miles-per-hour.
     About 16 miles later, near the Kansas/Oklahoma border, Ford's vehicle left the roadway, flipped onto its top and caught fire. Ford was pinned for a short time, but he was soon freed and flown to a Wichita hospital with critical injuries and burns.
