HAYS, Kan. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a naked Lawrence man crashed into a tractor-trailer while fleeing from troopers in western Kansas.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1wNDxDo) reports that the 21-year-old suspect is accused of throwing clothes and cash out of his car windows Thursday afternoon during the pursuit on Interstate 70.

Trooper Tod Hileman says the man fled when a trooper tried to pull him over west of Russell for speeding. The chase lasted about 10 minutes until the car’s tires were punctured near Victoria with stop sticks. Hileman says the westbound car kept going on its rims until the driver turned into the median and hit the eastbound semi.

Hileman says the rig had slowed to about 30 mph before the collision. The suspect has been taken into custody.
