A police chase turns violent tonight on an Eastern Kentucky highway in Pulaski County.

Officers in Somerset say they attempted to stop a man wanted in Indiana when he took off down the 914 bypass just outside the city limits. Officers say the man refused to pull over and hit a city police car, as well as a state police car, and did significant monetary damage to several cruisers. Police say they finally stopped the man in a parking lot but say he did not surrender easily.

Police have not released the suspect's name. He was taken to the hospital Friday night.

We hope to have much more on this developing story Saturday at six, on Mountain News the Weekend Edition.
