SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Police are looking for a driver who rammed into a Greene County Sheriff's SUV Wednesday night.

It happened after a DWI enforcement deputy pulled over the driver of a pick-up truck near Kansas Expressway and Sunshine.

Lt. Jeremy Lynn tells KOLR10 News the driver drove off and the deputy gave chase.  At one point, the driver stopped the truck, then rammed the deputy's SUV.
Lynn says the driver took off through neighborhoods, but eventually came back out onto Sunshine where there was heavier traffic.

The truck was found abandoned in a neighborhood south and east of Kansas Expressway. 

Lynn says deputies are looking for two people who were in the truck, and may know who the driver was.

No one was injured in the chase.
