Authorities say a fleeing driver rammed five vehicles before crashing in Wichita.

KSNW-TV reports that police responded Thursday night in nearby Andover after someone reported that a truck with a trailer was running into cars in a parking lot.

Andover police Lt. Don Roberson say police began pursuing the driver after he ran a red light. The driver then continued into Wichita, where he is accused of running another red light and rear-ending a car. Roberson says the driver then ran another red light, hitting more cars.

The chase ended when the driver crashed into railing. The driver, who's 32, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, fleeing and eluding, hit-and-run and running several lights.

Roberson say two vehicles were hit in Andover and three in Wichita.
