SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Police say a man whose relative had taken him to a Salina hospital for a mental evaluation crashed into three vehicles when he fled in a pickup truck.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1g853Xm ) reports that the 29-year-old Ottawa County man was apprehended by police Tuesday after the truck became struck in snow.

Lt. Sean Morton of the Salina Police Department says the man had been a passenger in the truck and was left alone in it while his relative went inside Salina Regional Health Center to seek help. Police were called at about 2:20 p.m. and told that a suicidal man armed with a rifle had just left the hospital parking lot.

Morton says the man also shot the truck windshield with a rifle while en route to the hospital.
