Benton County Sheriff's deputies and Prosser Police are searching for a man this morning, after he led them on a car pursuit and got away.

A Prosser police officer tried to stop a driver for suspicion of driving on a suspended license early this morning.

Authorities say the 60-year-old driver failed to yield and entered eastbound I-82 at the Prosser exit, which began the chase.

Due to concerns for the safety of the other drivers on the road, police decided to stop the pursuit at Gibbon Road.

Officers say that they know the identity of the driver and will continue the investigation this morning.
