Teen Fleeing Police Crashes; 4 Hurt

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2017
The crash happened 6.5 miles south of Salina on I 135.

Police in the Kansas community of Gardner say four people were injured in a crash involving a 15-year-old boy who had fled after striking a police officer.

An officer was checking on a car Saturday night when the driver suddenly sped away, striking and slightly injuring the officer.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers later chased the suspect on Interstate 435 before he lost control of the vehicle, sideswiped another vehicle and crossed into oncoming traffic before colliding head-on with another vehicle, which then overturned.

The suspect was taken a hospital. Three other people, including a toddler, also were injured.

The medical statuses of the injured were not immediately available Monday.

There was no immediate word about any charges.
