Details on what preceded the crash are limited, but Covington Police and Fire rescued the man from the pond outside the hospital.

The pursuit ended up on Monroe Street, which dead-ends.

The suspect continued through the shrubbery and bushes at the end of Monroe and flipped his vehicle into the detention basin.
