Father, Son Crash After High Speed Chase in Duncan

A high-speed chase today in Duncan ended in two separate crashes that left more than 800 customers without power.

Three cars crashed near 66th Street and Bois D'Arc Ave. Two of them, according to police, were driven by a father and son, who are said to have gotten into an argument before the chase made its way down Highway 7.

At this hour power is fully restored to the homes and businesses in the area.     

Police were on the scene shortly before 5 p.m. when the chase ended after the front-runner, the 17-year-old, drove across a patch slamming into a railroad sign, police say.

"He then ended up hitting a telephone pole, soon after that, which caused another telephone pole to fall down, said Master Office Jarrod Bishop, of the Duncan Police Department. "Power lines were flying everywhere and there was a small grass fire."

The son took off, but quickly turned himself in at the Stephens County Courthouse. The father, 45-year-old Brett Peavler of Duncan, was following behind in his Ford Explorer. Peavler was driving at such high speeds that he slammed into the passenger side of a black Tahoe while turning off 6th Street onto Bois D'Arc Ave. trying to catch up with his son.

Two females were inside the vehicle and the passenger was taken to Duncan Regional but is said to have minor injuries, according to Bishop. 

Both the father and son were charged.

"The father was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, the 17-year-old he was cited for reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident," said Bishop.  

Peavler also admitted to police tonight to have taken prescription narcotics before getting behind the wheel. He also has prior DUI charges on his record.     He will spend the night in a Stephens County jail cell and be arraigned in front of a judge tomorrow morning.
