TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma authorities say a deputy has been hospitalized after he was ejected from his vehicle during a chase.

Osage County Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown tells KOTV-TV (http://bit.ly/1953RoP ) the deputy’s vehicle landed on his lower legs. His identity hasn’t been released and his condition is unclear.

Police arrested a 46-year-old man on complaints including eluding. He is being held at the Tulsa County Jail. Authorities used spike strips on the man’s truck after the 45-minute chase that spanned about 20 miles near Tulsa.

Authorities say the man drove off as officers were preparing to serve a search warrant. Brown says the deputy was ejected after losing control of his vehicle during the chase.
