A man not looking to have a conversation with police ran from them in his vehicle on Midlothian Turnpike early Wednesday morning.
Officers tried to initiate a traffic stop at 2:20 a.m. when the pursuit began.
The driver then drove his vehicle onto southbound Powhite Parkway when he crashed onto the shoulder and fled on foot.
Police describe the driver as a man that was wearing a red shirt, black pants and black hat. Police said he was carrying a firearm and that a firearm was recovered in the woods near the crash site.
