ATLANTA -- A man was critically injured after falling four stories while running from police Friday morning.

The suspect, whose name was not released, fell at around 3:40 a.m. from a roof at the 2115 Piedmont apartment complex near Interstate 85 and the Buford Spring Connector in Atlanta.

Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee said the incident began as a traffic stop in the 2000 block of Piedmont Road. The suspect sped off and eventually led officers to the apartment complex. The chase continued onto the roof and ended with the suspect's fall.

The suspect was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
