A driver was in serious condition early Sunday after the car he was driving crashed after a brief chase by Fort Wayne Police.
Police reported that the man, who was not identified in a news release, was stopped by a sergeant in the Fort Wayne Police Department at 9:49 p.m. Saturday. The officer said the driver was speeding and driving recklessly in the area of Maumee and Glasgow avenues.
The driver pulled over, but then sped away when the officer stopped behind his vehicle.
The driver of the vehicle then lost control of the vehicle at the intersection of Maumee and Edsall avenues, about eight blocks east. There the vehicle ran off the road and rolled   several times before coming to rest against a fence just east of the intersection. The driver then got out of the car and ran off for a short distance before collapsing in a nearby lot, police said.
The driver was transported to a local hospital in serious condition. Police said criminal charges are pending.
Police said preliminary information indicates that the vehicle was recently stolen from Adams County, and speed and alcohol appear to have contributed to the crash.
