HOLTON, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a fleeing driver and his passenger were injured in a rollover crash in northeast Kansas.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the two men were taken to area hospitals with suspected minor injuries. Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says the pursuit started around 5 a.m. Sunday about 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) north of Holton when a deputy attempted to stop a Saturn Ion for traffic infractions. The driver then fled into Atchison County before overturning about 3 miles (4.83 kilometers) north Muscotah at the junction of Kansas 9 and U.S. 159.

The pursuit is under investigation.
