In a recent incident in Butler County, a high-speed law enforcement chase resulted in three individuals being hospitalized, including a police officer from Kansas. The details surrounding the crash have been revealed by authorities investigating the matter.

According to Butler County Undersheriff Daimon Cundiff, the incident unfolded just after 6 p.m. on Monday at the Butler County-Greenwood County line on US 400. Greenwood County deputies were responding to a vehicle that failed to yield, which was reported to be a pickup truck pulling an empty boat trailer that had collided with another vehicle.

Upon locating the driver, identified as Allan Milton Firman III, a 44-year-old resident of Wichita, law enforcement officials attempted to stop the vehicle. However, Firman refused to comply, leading to a pursuit that ended at the county line on US 400 when the pursuing Greenwood County deputy terminated the chase.

Shortly after, the Butler County Emergency Communications received reports of a reckless driver matching the description of the truck involved in the earlier pursuit, driving at high speeds into oncoming traffic in a construction zone near Beaumont.

A deputy eventually spotted the truck on US 400 and Pickrell Road, attempting to stop it, but Firman continued to evade law enforcement. Deputies deployed tire deflation devices along the highway to halt the fleeing pickup, with the driver swerving into the median to avoid the devices and nearly striking a deputy in the process.

As the pickup continued west in the eastbound lanes of US 400, another tire deflation device was deployed near US 400 and Lunger Road on the east side of Augusta. However, Firman managed to enter the city of Augusta, where the pickup collided with an Augusta Police Department Dodge Durango Pursuit driven by Officer Kyle E. Sisco.

All three individuals involved in the crash, including Firman, a passenger Sandra C. Schopplein, and Officer Sisco, were transported to hospitals in the Wichita area for treatment. Following medical attention, Firman was booked into the Butler County Jail on multiple charges, including fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, drug offenses, driving under the influence, transporting an open container, and reckless driving.

It was revealed that Firman had two prior convictions for aggravated battery, as confirmed by the Kansas Department of Corrections. He is scheduled to appear in court for the first time on Wednesday afternoon to face the charges brought against him.

As the investigation continues into this harrowing incident in Butler County, the community remains shocked by the reckless actions that endangered the lives of multiple individuals. Stay tuned for further updates on this developing story.
