A man was in critical condition after he drove from police and crashed on the northeast side early Saturday morning.

The man drove his car with police in pursuit near the intersection on Eisenhauer and I-35 just after 2 a.m.

Police say he slammed into an SUV in the intersection, then hit a curb and went into a field before crashing into a billboard support.

The man was ejected from his car.

EMS transported him to SAMMC a few blocks away in critical condition.

Two women in the SUV had to be cut from it.

They also went to SAMMC for treatment of minor injuries.

Police say they'll charge the suspect with evading arrest in a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and traffic warrants.
