A man in a stolen truck led police on a chase before crashing into a tree.
40-year-old Mark Berwert will face multiple felony charges once he is released from the hospital.
Police tried to stop him just before midnight in northeast Topeka and he sped off, eluding police for less than a mile before wrecking into a tree, and attempting to flee on foot.
The chase ended just east of Garfield Park.
Berwert will be taken to the Department of Corrections once he is released from the hospital.
