Ohio Man Behind Bars After Fremont County High-Speed Chase

Wyoming Highway Patrol

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says an Ohio man is in custody after reportedly leading authorities on a 59-mile high-speed chase through Fremont County in a stolen pickup truck over the weekend.

Sgt. Steven Townsend says 32-year-old Matthew Snyder of Alliance, Ohio, began the northbound chase from Riverton on U.S. 26/287 shortly after 9:00 p.m. Saturday after Snyder, who was speeding, was alerted by troopers to pull over for a routine traffic stop.

Townsend says Snyder’s vehicle reached speeds of 114 miles per hour and Snyder tossed multiple bags of an unknown substance from the vehicle during the chase. Snyder also reportedly, in an attempt to mislead authorities, shut off the vehicle’s headlights.

Townsend says Snyder eventually left the highway and plowed through a barbed wire fence. He was ultimately found by troopers and Wind River Bureau of Indian Affairs Police passed out in the back seat of the pickup.

Snyder has been charged with speeding, eluding police, driving while under the influence, driving with a suspended licence, reckless driving and possession of a stolen vehicle.
