BILLINGS – A 27-year-old man is in custody after stealing, then crashing, a 2002 Jaguar on the Billings West End.

Police initially thought the man was a dangerous and wanted felon and pursued the vehicle, Krivitz said. It ran a red light at the intersection of South 24th Street West and Monad Road and then crashed into a work truck, Krivitz said.

The truck then spun around and hit a Nissan Xterra vehicle, according to Krivitz.

Littlelight allegedly fled and tried to get into another vehicle, but was apprehended, Krivitz said.

One person was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, Krivitz said.

Littlelight is in police custody, Krivitz said.
