ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Highway Patrol says a 15-year-old boy was seriously injured in a crash as he was fleeing from Atchison police.

The patrol says officers began pursuing a pickup truck early Friday on Main Street in Atchison.

The report does not indicate what prompted the pursuit. The truck eventually left the road and hit a building.

The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the truck.

He was taken to the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas. No one else was in the pickup.
