A driver rolled his vehicle in Seymour early Saturday morning while trying to flee from police.

The Seymour Police Department is reporting that an officer tried to stop a vehicle near East Tipton Street and the interstate at about 4:15 a.m. Saturday morning, but after stopping long enough for the officer to get out of his car, the driver allegedly took off.

Police ended up putting down tire deflation devices, with the vehicle eventually crashing near the 100 block of East Oak Street, where the driver, 20-year-old Cody Hurley, rolled the vehicle near the railroad tracks. Hurley allegedly tried to run away before being arrested the 100 block of West Laurel Street.

Hurley is facing preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement on foot and with a vehicle, never being licensed to drive, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
