Man Critical After Leading Troopers On High Speed Chase

A man is in critical condition, authorities say he led them on a high speed chase before crashing into a power pole and irrigation ditch late Tuesday night.

Colorado State Patrol says they tried to pull over 26–year–old Reggie Trujillo for driving under the influence at 32 road. Troopers say that's when Trujillo took off at speeds of 90 miles per hour before crashing at the intersection of 29 and B 1/2 Roads.

Trujillo had to be extricated from his car and was rushed to St. Mary's hospital.
