PHOENIX — A man has been arrested after attempting to evade DPS troopers Sunday afternoon.

Troopers say after a Ford car failed to yield on eastbound Interstate 10 at 67th Avenue, they collided with another vehicle after exiting the freeway on 43rd Avenue.

The driver of the Ford then fled into a nearby trailer park, where troopers then captured him after deploying a Taser.

The driver in the other vehicle has minor injuries and the suspect was taken into custody, DPS officials say.

The suspect's identity has not been released.
