Police say the truck's driver, 44-year-old Robert Michael Banet of Leavenworth, was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries following the crash.

Police say a Marengo police officer tried to stop Banet's pickup for having defective taillights, but Banet refused to stop. He led police on a one-mile pursuit before he lost control of the truck and hit a tree.

Police are weighing possible charges against Banet.
