Car chase ends in Sterling crash

A Monday car chase that began in Kenai ended in Sterling when 28 year-old Dylan Adkins of Anchorage crashed a stolen white pick-up into some trees, after being pursued first by Kenai Police and then by Alaska State Troopers.

Around 1:00 p.m the Kenai Police Department contacted the troopers for assistance in stopping a reported stolen vehicle, according to an Alaska State Troopers dispatch. After Kenai Police lost contact with the white Ford pickup, troopers spotted and attempted unsuccessfully to stop it, instead pursuing it into Sterling where it crashed.

The vehicle was returned to its owner and Adkins, uninjured, was taken to Wildwood Pre-Trial Facility on charges of burglary, vehicle theft, failure to stop for a peace officer, third-degree assault on a peace officer, and “numerous counts of assault for endangering the public with his driving during the pursuit,” the dispatch states.

Troopers are asking witnesses of the chase or other people involved to contact them at 907-262-4453.
