HOUSTON — Police said a man was taken to the hospital after he crashed during a pursuit overnight.

The crash happened at about midnight Tuesday.

Officers tried to pull the suspect over for a traffic stop along the Katy Freeway, but the man allegedly refused to stop. The suspect took E. 2nd Street, south of The Heights, where he crashed into a utility pole.

The driver was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. A female passenger in his vehicle was not hurt.

Officers had to wait for the utility company to respond before they could search the vehicle, due to live power lines.
