LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man who caused an injury crash during a police pursuit and escaped from the hospital has been arrested.

According to Chief Russ Whelan, Adam Moore left University Hospital and checked himself into Norton Hospital's ER where he was recognized and turned in.

First responders informed Chief Whelan that Moore sustained serious head injuries and significant internal injuries. Whelan said his police department does not have arrest powers across state lines so Sellersburg did not send and officer to monitor Moore in the hospital.

Since Moore had outstanding arrest warrants in Jefferson County and Bullitt County, Whelan expected LMPD, JCSCO or Bullitt County agencies to assist with guarding Moore.

Chief Whelan said his agency was not concerned about Moore "getting up and walking out" because he was ejected from a vehicle traveling 100mph.

We will update the story as we receive more information.
