A Bellevue man is facing charges when he is released from the hospital.

Bellevue police say an officer was conducting radar speed enforcement on Railroad Avenue, just south of Harrison Street Tuesday night when a white Ford Taurus sped by at 55 m.p.h. in a 25 m.p.h. zone. The car sped off as the officer turned around to conduct a traffic stop.

The Taurus fled northbound on Railroad Avenue until the driver ran a red light at Gilmore Avenue. The car collided with another vehicle in the intersection.

The driver continued to try to flee, driving the damaged car for about 1/4 mile until the car couldn't go any farther. It broke down just south of 24th and Q Streets.

Police say the driver of the Taurus, 38-year-old Shane E. Clark of Bellevue, was transported to the Nebraska Medical Center. His injuries are not believed be life-threatening.

Clark faces charges of felony flight to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving, speeding, driving under suspension and possession of marijuana less than one ounce.

A female passenger with Clark was treated and released from the Nebraska Medical Center without being charged. The driver of the vehicle hit by Clark was treated and released at the scene of the crash.
