A police chase ends in a crash and knocks out power to people living in one Lexington neighborhood.

The chase ended right off of Price Road and now police are still searching for the two men involved.

The chase began Sunday night when a Kentucky State Police trooper noticed a pickup truck with no license plate driving erratically on Interstate 64.

The trooper attempted to stop the truck, but the driver of that truck did not stop, and that's when the chase began.

The truck driver took the Newtown (115) exit and headed into the residential area of Greenwood Drive. Police say the truck driver ran into a fence and the trooper tried to block it in. That's when the truck backed into the trooper's car.

The truck then headed down the road and ran into a utility pole. Then both men inside the truck ran away.

The trooper tried to chase them, but at this time they are still missing. The trooper was cut on his hands and legs during the chase, but was otherwise unharmed.

Power has been restored to the Greenwood Dr. neighborhood.
