A man who fled from a traffic stop ended up in the hospital after he hit an SUV on Friday morning.

Waco police said an officer was trying to make a traffic stop when the motorcycle rider fled near 17th Street and Herring Avenue. Police did not initiate a chase, because they said it is unsafe when pursuing a motorcycle. 

The rider continued to drive away, but collided with an SUV near Trice Avenue, causing him serious injuries. The man was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Police say they do not believe the motorcycle was stolen.
