JANESVILLE, WIS -- A 53-year-old Janesville man is in custody, after crashing his vehicle during a car chase with police.

Officers were called to the Walmart along Deerfield Drive around 6 p.m. Friday after receiving a tip on a Russell T. Haman, who authorities say was involved in a pursuit in Green County earlier in the day. He also had a warrant from the Illinois Department of Corrections for several felonies, and was considered armed and dangerous.

When police tried to stop Haman, he drove away, sending officers on a chase that lasted only a few minutes before Haman crashed his car. A 49-year-old woman was hurt in the crash, however she sustained minor injuries.

Haman then tried to run away from police, but a K-9 unit tracked him down.

Haman and the passenger in his car, Teagan Simplot, were both badly injured in the crash and are currently being treated at Mercy Hospital. Haman will be transferred to the Rock County Jail once doctors have cleared him for release.

Haman is facing multiple charges, including felony fleeing, hit and run, theft and resisting an officer.
