BENTON COUNTY, AR -- A maroon Jeep led police on a chase down the interstate Friday afternoon.

Bella Vista police said they were alerted to be on the look out for a maroon jeep being driven by someone who had reportedly been shoplifting from a Walmart in Jane Missouri.  A gas station called police to report that someone driving the vehicle was seen stealing plates from cars.  Officers caught up with him but he drove off, colliding with an off ramp before heading south bound on 540.

Arkansas State Police joined the chase north of Bentonville and a short time later, the jeep crashed near exit 86.  Rogers Fire Department told us an ambulance was sent to the scene

More details to come.
