CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- A Springville man is in the hospital Sunday morning after a simple traffic stop ended in a police chase.

Cedar Rapids Police say they stopped 27-year-old John Robert Power near the area of Fifth Street and Fifth Avenue southeast because his headlights were out.

Police say when an officer approached the vehicle, Power sped off.

He then crashed, ran from the scene and was found near the Cargill plant.

Power was transported to a hospital. He faces several charges, including operating a vehicle under the influence.
