A Perryville, Mo., man was hospitalized with serious injuries after he fled a Perry County sheriff's deputy and crashed his vehicle early Sunday morning, authorities said.

About 2:50 a.m., a deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on Dylan A. Bohnert, 19, who was driving a 1996 Ford on Perry County Road 906, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Bohnert was eastbound when he lost control of his vehicle on a curve, went off the road, struck a tree and overturned, troopers said.

Bohnert, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered serious injuries and was flown to St. Louis University Hospital.
