TEMPLE -- A man is in the hospital due to a possible overdose after a high-speed chase in Temple Sunday night.

It started on I-35 near Midway Dr. when 49-year-old Richard Francis of Round Rock passed police driving dangerously.

Francis didn't stop even after hitting an empty car parked on the shoulder.

Eventually police say the car stopped because it was inoperable, and Francis appeared intoxicated. He was taken to a local hospital where he is still being treated.

He's charged with evading with a vehicle.
