CREATED Apr 4, 2014

TULSA, Okla. (KTUL)  State troopers are investigating after a police pursuit in Creek County left one man dead late Thursday evening.

Sapulpa Police attempted to stop the suspect, identified as Kevin Hilburn, during a traffic stop around 11:30 a.m. Hilburn left the scene at a high rate of speed leading officers from Creek County into west Tulsa.

Hilburn was driving east on I-44 and attempted to make an exit near 33rd West Avenue when he reportedly missed a curve and went straight into the median, a report describes. His truck rolled over several times.

Officials stated that he was ejected from the truck he was driving and died on the scene.

Records indicate that Hilburn was previously incarcerated for three counts of eluding an officer. He was released October 2013.

Another passenger in the vehicle, identified as Michiko Henderson, was taken to an area hospital and treated for minor injuries. No information has been given on whether she will be taken into custody for the pursuit.
