Man drives through gate at Alaska military baseJanuary 19, 2013 @ 4:08 pm
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Authorities in Alaska are looking for the driver of a pickup truck who drove through a gate at a military base and led security forces on a high-speed chase.
Officials at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson say the 1994 GMC Sierra went through the Boniface Gate around midnight Friday.
Security forces shot at the truck to try to disable it, but the male driver avoided the gunfire and left the base through the same gate, escaping arrest. The gate was closed for seven hours after the chase.
Base officials are working with Alaska State Troopers and Anchorage police to find the driver.
No other details were immediately available.
