LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A police chase on Ryan Street is related to a stolen vehicle, Cpl. Larry Moss, with the Lake Charles Police Department, said.

Moss said the driver has been detained and there is no danger to the public.

Viewers reported the accident traveled east on Sale Road, then north on Ryan Street, where it crashed.

It collided with another vehicle, while traveling on the wrong side of the road, according to the driver, who was hit head-on. 

"I was coming down Ryan Street, heading south, and I saw some cop lights in my rear view mirror, so I started merging over to the right shoulder and looked up and saw a guy coming head on at me," said the driver, Robert Lyles. 

That driver along with other witnesses say, the vehicle was traveling 70 to 90 mph. 

Avoid Ryan Street between Prien Lake Road and Alamo Street.
