A man is in the hospital and facing a felony charge after a Sunday morning police chase ended in a dramatic crash in southwest Houston. 

The chaos started around 1:15 a.m, when Houston police tried stopping a driver near South Main and Orem. But instead of pulling over, the man allegedly led police on a high-speed chase, running red lights as he sped through the southwest part of the city. 


Even after police spikes flattened his tires on Southwest Freeway, the determined driver continued fleeing, police said. 

He was driving on just the rims when he finally lost control on Bissonnet and slammed sideways into a tree in the median. 

Firefighters had to extract the driver from the crushed car before rushing him to a hospital with a broken leg and other injuries. 

Two of three passengers in the car were questioned and released, and the third was arrested for cocaine possession, police said. 

The driver is being charged with felony evading, although authorities did not immediately release his name.
