FEBRUARY 21, 2019 (NORTH PLATTE, NEB.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) have arrested a North Platte man on several charges, including possession of methamphetamine, open container, and leaving the scene of an accident, following a foot pursuit Wednesday morning near Sutherland.

At approximately 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, NSP received a report of a crash on eastbound I-80 involving a tractor-trailer and a Pontiac sedan. After arriving on scene, troopers were informed that the driver of the Pontiac had fled on foot.

Troopers were able to track the suspect through the snow and over the South Platte River until they were able to apprehend him approximately two miles from the accident scene. The suspect, Eric White, 35, of North Platte, had received facial injuries in the crash and was showing signs of hypothermia. He was taken to Great Plains Health in North Platte.
