Police arrived on the scene, about two minutes after being dispatched, to find one vehicle on its roof and the driver partially ejected from the rolled Jeep Cherokee. An Overland Park Fire Department unit arrived and reported heavy damage to the vehicle. Fire crews worked about 20 minutes to extricate the critically injured driver, who was partially pinned under the overturned Jeep.

Police say the Jeep Cherokee was stolen, sometime overnight, from an address in Overland Park. The same Jeep was also involved in a hit and run accident, of at least one parked car, in the 8300 block of Robinson Street. A witness to that crash then followed the suspect. That witness tells Police that the suspect turned off all of the vehicles lights and tried to speed away. The suspect attempted to turn eastbound on 87th Street from Robinson when the vehicle rolled over.

The driver has only been identified as a male in his 20's with extremely critical injuries. Officers say the man did not have any form of identification with him.
