Lawrence police are seeking a man who escaped on foot after allegedly leading an officer on a short pursuit and crashing a stolen vehicle into a ditch early Monday morning.
According to police, an officer attempted to stop a vehicle near the intersection of Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive around 2:30 a.m. The suspect did not stop, and he led police on a short pursuit until his vehicle left the roadway and went into a ditch near Legends Place apartments, 4010 W. 24th Place, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley.
“The driver then fled on foot and was not located by officers,” McKinley said.
Officers determined the suspect’s vehicle had been stolen, and the temporary tag on the vehicle had been altered, according to police.
