A man was taken to the hospital after crashing a stolen car into a brick planter early Wednesday morning.
Officials say a UK police officer spotted a stolen car heading the wrong way toward Broadway on Short Street. The driver took off and crashed the car into the planter at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Short Street. The driver jumped out of the car and tried to run away toward the court house, but officers caught up with him and took him into custody.
EMS took the driver to UK Hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the crash.
Police continue to investigate. They have not said what charges the driver might face.
