LAS VEGAS -- A 20-year-old man suffered critical injuries in an accident Friday night after police say he tried to evade authorities.

The incident started at approximately 10:20 p.m. when a patrol unit located a 1999 Honda Civic that had been reported stolen.

The officer followed the vehicle into a gas station at Decatur Boulevard and Vegas Drive. At that point, police say the Honda sped off. Officers followed the Honda, but did not engage in a high-speed pursuit.

The Honda eventually collided with a 2000 Nissan Sentra at the intersection of Decatur and Kansas Avenue, injuring the driver of the Honda. The driver of the Nissan suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the Honda was transported to University Medical Center in critical condition.
