Local man goes on bizarre crime spree; carjacks two separate cars

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A man is in the hospital with serious injuries after going on a bizarre crime spree on Tuesday night.

Kansas City police say they took the drunken man to St. Luke's hospital because he was too drunk to go to jail.

The man got out of the hospital and jumped into a running pizza delivery car near 45th and Wornall.

He drove off in the car and ditched it a short time later at 55th and Oak.

Then, at 54th and Holmes, the man reportedly jumped into the passenger side of another car.

The driver of that car was able to get the man out, but a few blocks away, the drunken man jumped back in the car, forcing the driver out.

The suspect drove off in the car but slammed into a fire hydrant and telephone pole.

He was taken back to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police have not charged the man yet.
