The Arizona Department of Public Safety arrested one of two suspects involved in a Phoenix pursuit that ended in a crash. 

DPS said a trooper attempted a traffic stop on Interstate 17 and Thomas Road at around 4 a.m., but the vehicle did not stop and instead exited at McDowell Road, where it crashed. Two occupants fled the vehicle. Troopers and Phoenix police officers located and arrested the passenger, according to DPS.

DPS said the passenger was treated on scene for injuries and was later transported to the hospital for evaluations. He is expected to recover, DPS said.

Troopers are working to identify the driver, who has not yet been found, according to DPS. 

It was not immediately clear why the occupants fled, DPS said. 

The roadway was re-opened around 5:40 a.m.
