A driver rolled his car early Wednesday morning after leading Lawrence police on a chase through a neighborhood south of Kansas University.
The driver, a 28-year-old Lawrence man, ran a red light heading south at 19th and Tennessee streets at 1:30 a.m., police said.
“When an officer tried to pull the car over, the driver failed to yield,” Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl said. “He attempted to flee from the officer, taking side streets and some major streets through the Centennial neighborhood.”
After driving west on 21st Street, east on 22nd Street, and north on Carolina Street, the man proceeded to Ousdahl Road and headed south across 23rd Street.
The driver then tried to turn east on 25th Court but could not negotiate the turn, causing his car to roll over.
Medical personnel arrived shortly to treat the man, who was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment of minor cuts to his forehead.
The driver was arrested on charges of operating under the influence, attempting to elude police, reckless driving, no insurance and driving while suspended. Bond was set at $1,050.
