JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Juneau driver fleeing from police at high speed was arrested after a crash in front of Juneau-Douglas High School.

The Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/1CQzsBP) reports 42-year-old Jose Angel Munoz was arrested after a collision with an 82-year-old driver.

Munoz was wanted on a warrant for drug and felony driving-under-the-influence charges.

Police say an officer spotted Munoz and tried to make a traffic stop but Munoz drove into the neighborhood uphill from the high school.

Munoz was descending at high speed and making a left turn in front of the school when he crashed. He was apprehended on foot.

He was charged with felony drug misconduct, failure to stop at the direction of a police officer and failure to render aid.

The woman in the other car was not injured.
