A driver was hit and seriously injured after police say he ignored a stop sign overnight near downtown Houston.

Houston police say the man behind the wheel of a Camaro blew through a stop sign at Runnels and Chartres just east of downtown. An oncoming pickup truck couldn't stop in time, and crashed into him.

Houston firefighters had to cut the man out of the Camaro. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

No one else was hurt.
