WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita police have identified a 28-year-old man who died in a crash near Park City while he was fleeing from officers.
Police say Gabriel Christian Seim was behind the wheel of a small sport utility vehicle that sped away from a traffic stop and collided with a pickup truck. The truck driver suffered injuries that are not considered life threatening. Police spokesman Charley Davidson says that before the traffic stop, officers had received a report of Seim selling drugs while armed. Police who spotted Seim’s vehicle pulled him over and say he sped away when officers ordered him out the vehicle.
Davidson says police found possible evidence of drugs in Seim’s car after the crash.
