LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man was rushed to the hospital with unknown injuries early Sunday morning after police say he was pinned between a wall and a truck.

According to an arrest report, it happened just before 3:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Huddle House restaurant at 1066 N. College Street in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

Police say 18-year-old Justin Deaton pulled into the parking lot "recklessly," smashing into a parked truck. According to the arrest report, the parked truck was then pushed forward, pinning a man between the truck and the Huddle House building.

A 17-year-old boy was standing in front of the truck at the time and was knocked down, suffering minor injuries, according to police.

Police say that after the crash, Deaton ran away.

According to the arrest report, a passenger of Deaton's vehicle stayed on the scene and told police that Deaton had been intoxicated at the time of the crash, and that he -- the passenger -- had asked Deaton several times before the crash to let him out of the car. 

Deaton was arrested Tuesday night at the Harrodsburg Police Department. He is charged with second degree assault, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, fourth degree assault and leaving the scene of an accident or failure to render aid or assistance.

He is currently being held in the Boyle County Detention Center.

The condition of the victim who was pinned between the truck and the wall is not publicly available.
