WILSON, Kan. (AP) — A central Kansas man who allegedly led law enforcement on a high-speed chase has been injured after his vehicle crashed.

The Salina Journal reports that the man, 47, was transported to Wesley Medical Center following the Thursday crash just south of Wilson. A hospital spokesman says the man was in serious condition as of Thursday afternoon.

A Kansas Highway Patrol report states that the man was being pursued by law enforcement when he attempted to turn into a field entrance at a high rate of speed, causing his vehicle to roll several times.

Ellsworth County Sheriff Murray Marston says the county deputy was investigating a parked car when the car took off at high speeds and crossed into Russell County.
