WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Wilmington police say a man who tried to flee in his car to avoid a traffic stop was caught after the vehicle ran out of gas.

Police spokesman Officer Mark Ivey says authorities spotted a vehicle speeding about 3 p.m. Wednesday in Wilmington. Ivey says an officer tried to stop the car, but it continued to speed onto Interstate 95.

Ivey says it was on the interstate that the vehicle slowed to a stop, out of gas.
