The Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Neal Ulfers, 37. As of early Monday afternoon, Ulfers was being kept under guard at St. Francis Hospital & Health Services. The extent of his injuries and/or medical condition were not immediately available.

Charges were still pending, according to the Sheriff’s Office. No bail had been set.
According to authorities the chase began in Nebraska and proceeded through southwest Iowa before Ulfers crossed the Missouri line into Atchison County. Public Safety Director Keith Wood said the chase reached speeds in excess of 80 mph.
Trooper Corey Moore of the Iowa State Patrol said the chase originated in Nebraska, and that Ulfers’ white Chevrolet pickup truck was allegedly stolen from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

He said that Nebraska authorities broke off their pursuit at the Iowa line, where ISP and county officers resumed the chase on Interstate 29 about 15 miles north of the Missouri border. Ulfers then turned onto Iowa Highway 2 and navigated several country routes, including gravel roads, before entering Missouri southbound on Highway 59.

In Missouri, the pursuit was taken up by Tarkio police, where an officer briefly followed Ulfers on Highway 59 before the suspect turned east on Highway 136.

Units from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office and Maryville public safety continued the chase in Nodaway County as the suspect proceeded westbound on Highway 46, where officers were able to use spikes to blow out the truck’s right front tire in the vicinity of Northwest Missouri Regional Airport.
The chase continued on the outskirts of Maryville, and a second set of spikes was used to blow the truck’s left front tire on Route V near the entrance to Maryville Middle School.

The chase essentially lapped the city, proceeding along Icon Road and Route V and then south to Baumli Auto Sales & Service south of town on Highway 71.

Veering across the median into the northbound lane, the suspect backtracked north on the Highway 71 bypass to Gray’s Truck Stop & Restaurant, then turned back south on Ideal Road to West 16th before retracing his route down Icon (known as Country Club Road inside the city limits), east on V and north to the 71 bypass/South Main (Business 71) intersection.

At that point, according to officers on the scene, the suspect was forced off the road by a trooper driving a white, unmarked SUV.

The suspect was removed from the vehicle without incident and lay facedown in handcuffs while being examined by a first-responder wearing rubber gloves. Still cuffed, he was able to walk to a waiting ambulance on his own power while flanked by a couple of officers.

Though the suspect apparently suffered a number of scrapes and at least one laceration to his right shoulder, he did not appear to be seriously injured.
