DECATUR, Ga. -- DeKalb County Police say one man was injured early Thursday morning, when the vehicle he is suspected of stealing ran over him as he attempted to escape police.

DeKalb Police Lt. Dane Cunningham said officers were following two stolen vehicles when one driver jumped from his moving vehicle in the 2,000 block of Golf Valley Drive.

Cunningham said the stolen Dodge Voyager ran over the driver.

Officers continued to follow the second vehicle, a Dodge Ram truck, and found it wrecked on Glenwood Road. That driver got away on foot, but police arrested a female passenger.

The 25-year-old injured suspect is in satisfactory condition at Grady Hospital.

Charges in the case are pending.
