Just before 9 p.m. Monday, a police chase ended in east Wichita, just east of Woodlawn and Kellogg Drive.  One person was taken into custody, but suffered injuries in the chase-ending crash.

The chase snaked through central and east Wichita.  The driver avoided spike strips near 17th and Mosley.  The car ran several red lights and later reached speeds of 65 mph near Woodlawn and Lincoln before eventually crashing.

Eastbound Kellogg Drive east of Woodlawn was closed for over 90 minutes as officers investigated and cleaned up the roadway.

There's no word yet on why the driver was fleeing police.
