An Elk City teenage driver was taken to the hospital after he refused to pull over for police and rolled his car. The teen then left the hospital before testing was done.

It happened at 3:20 a.m. Saturday, on State Highway 34, about one mile north of Carter in Beckham County.

A police officer was trying to pull over a 1986 Cadillac driven by 17-year-old Cody Jones before it entered city limits of Carter, but Jones refused to stop for an unknown reason.

The police officer then performed a tactical vehicle intervention. Jones lost control of his car which left the roadway to the left and struck an electric pole.

The car rolled half time, coming to rest on its top.

Jones was air lifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City with unknown injuries. However, he left the hospital before a testing could be done.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol's report lists the teen's condition before the wreck as "drinking - ability impaired."
