A suspect was injured after jumping from his vehicle during a police pursuit early Tuesday morning.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said preliminary information indicates a trooper attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a vehicle for possible impaired driving on White Bridge Road shortly before 6 a.m.

The vehicle did not pull over and a pursuit ensued.

The suspect crashed when he attempted to turn onto Gwynnwood Drive from Ewing Drive.  He reportedly jumped from the vehicle and ran.

Metro police captured him a short distance away in the woods.

He was transported to Nashville General Hospital at Meharry to be treated for minor injuries.

No further details were immediately released.
