ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – A driver was arrested early Tuesday morning after flipping his vehicle near the intersection of Kingshighway and Connecticut in an attempt to avoid a routine traffic stop.

It happened when an SUV – which police say was in the process of being stopped for a routine violation – continued driving and flipped over near Courtesy Diner. No one was injured, and the driver was taken into custody on the scene.

Northbound Kingshighway was partially blocked while the vehicle was flipped back over and taken away.

No additional information was immediately available.
