UPDATE 7/25: Anthony Raymont Ford was arrested Thursday in Wichita, Kansas after allegedly fleeing police and flipping his car in a fiery wreck, according to Wichita station KAKE-TV.

KAKE reports troopers with the Kansas Turnpike Authority spotted a black Pontiac Trans Am at 2 p.m. Thursday and tried to stop the vehicle, but Ford fled, at times reaching speeds of 110-to-120 miles per hour.

Near the Oklahoma/Kansas border, Ford's vehicle left the roadway, flipped onto its roof, and caught fire. Ford was pinned briefly, then freed.

He was flown to a Wichita hospital with critical injuries and burns.

Arrangements are in the works to get Ford extradited to Texas.
