A driver on the run from police gunned it 70 miles per hour up Montrose Boulevard overnight, officers say.

It's amazing no one else was hurt when that car slammed into a telephone pole near Montrose and Peden. Officers say the driver, who is in his 30s, refused to pull over after he was caught driving without headlights, ending in that crash.

One of the police cars in pursuit also slammed into the back of the driver's car. The suspect driver was scraped up enough that he had to go to the hospital.

He also had a surprise for police in the seat of his car -- a stash of marijuana.
