Man in hospital following Clovis pursuit and crash

FRESNO, Calif.

Police say they tried to pull over the 19-year-old suspect on Alluvial for a routine traffic stop.

They say he stopped cooperating with police and drove off.

Police chased him down Alluvial to Sunnyside, where they say the suspect made a fast turn and lost control of his car.

The driver crashed into a tree and fence. He was not seriously hurt.

The impact was so hard the engine flew out of the car and landed a few feet away.
