MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) — A man from Oklahoma was seriously injured in a crash Sunday afternoon after attempting to run from police.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, around 3:20 p.m., a 33-year-old man from Blanchard was driving a 2005 Dodge Durango westbound on U.S. 166 near the U.S. 75 junction.
The KHP says he was attempting to elude police at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a curve, causing him to veer off the highway to the left. He then hit a guardrail, overturned off the roadway and came to a rest right side up.
The man was taken to an Oklahoma hospital with suspected serious injuries, according to the KHP.
