According to the Evansville Police Department, three officers rescued a man from his burning car around 5:30 a.m. Saturday after he crashed into the African American Museum.

EPD said they were called to the 1500 block of Judson Street for a report of shots fired. When they arrived, officers noticed a car leaving quickly. According to EPD, when an officer tried to stop the driver, Sean Whitlock, he refused.

Whitlock fled and then crashed into the African American Museum. EPD said Whitlock's car caught fire and he suffered serious injuries. 

Three officers then pulled him out of the vehicle.

According to EPD, Whitlock will be charged with Resisting Law Enforcement Class D Felony once he is released from the hospital.

EPD said officers have not determined if Whitlock was involved in the original shots fired call.

The executive director of the African American Museum said it will be closed until further notice.
