(KMOV.com) - Police are looking for a driver who led officers on a chase after driving through a funeral procession on Tuesday.

According to police, a funeral procession was heading west on Page in Wellston when a man in a red Chvy pick-up truck drove through it.

An officer tried to pull the man over to give him a warning. That’s when the suspect swerved at the officer and kept going.

The officer pursued, but broke off the case after leaving the Wellston city limits. Other municipalities then joined in, but eventually lost the man around Highway 370 in the Earth City area.

Authorities got the license plate number and said the vehicle was registered to a St. Charles County address.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 50s with a salt and pepper beard and shoulder-length hair.
