The Running Man: Speeder Fleeing Police Crashes Car But Gets Out & Escapes on Foot

The Elmhurst police couldn't catch the man when he made a run for it.

A man pulled over for speeding tore away from the traffic stop, crashed into a tree and still managed to escape the cops on foot, police said.

A police officer reportedly stopped the man for speeding about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday near the corner of North and Melrose avenues but the driver "fled the scene while being questioned," police said.

"He ran his vehicle into a parkway tree and knocked down the stop sign at (the southwest) corner of Elmhurst and Willow," police said, and then he dashed off, not to be seen again.

Police released no further information about the fugitive.

Looks like the police need to hit a treadmill or weight room
