Authorities have arrested 26-year-old Joseph Linhart in connection with a traffic accident early Friday morning.

A restored 1946 pickup was rear-ended at the intersection of South 60th and L streets just after 12:30 a.m. The truck driver said the pickup that hit him drove off.

Police soon caught up to the driver identified as Linhart after a pursuit and foot chase near 52nd and O. They say he had driven onto a lawn, clipped a house and crashed into a tree. Police believe he may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
