One young man ended up in the hospital after he attempted to run from police and crashed his vehicle.

Early Sunday (Aug. 28) morning around 3:30 a.m., Mesa County Sheriff's deputies, along with the Grand Junction Fire Department and the Clifton Fire Protection Agency, worked to free a 23-year-old man from a wrecked pickup truck.

The driver was in the area of 30 and D Roads when he was contacted by deputies. The driver attempted to flee when he crashed into a street pole at a high rate of speed. The driver -- who was alone in the vehicle -- was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The driver was driving on a canceled/denied driver's license, had stolen plates on his truck and alcohol is considered to be a factor.

Two lessons here, don't drink and drive and don't run from the cops.
