DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A central Iowa man involved in a car crash has been accused of trying to run away from authorities while in handcuffs.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year-old Maurice Daye, of West Des Moines, was driving a vehicle at a high speed Tuesday afternoon when he crashed into a utility pole in the Des Moines area.

Daye was put into handcuffs. Authorities say he broke free from a deputy’s grip and took off running on foot. Daye was eventually apprehended without incident. He faces charges of driving while barred, no insurance and interference.

A passenger in the car, 34-year-old Craig D. Smith, of Des Moines, was arrested on a warrant linked to a child support case.

Court records do not list attorneys for the men.
