TOPEKA — A man has been rushed to a hospital after jumping out of a sport utility vehicle while fleeing from police.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the vehicle the man was driving ran over him. Topeka police Lt. Jennifer Cross said in a news release that the chase started early Sunday after police attempted to stop the SUV driver for running a red light. Authorities had been looking for the SUV because it was thought to be connected to a domestic dispute.
Police say the pursuit ended when the man jumped out of the driver’s side. He was transported to a local hospital.
