However, Sr. Cpl. Jason Hatchell, state police spokesman, says this was not a pursuit. The 18-year-old man was driving the Acura in a reckless manner, lost control in the area of Agave and crashed.

Although the vehicle overturned, the driver fled but was later located. He had minor injuries.

There were also reports that a passenger was in the car when it overturned. But Sr. Cpl. Hatchell said he did not have any additional information.
