SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah Police arrested a man overnight after he was caught running from a burning car.

Savannah Police say an officer responded to Kensington Park on a suspicious activity call, and when they arrived, a Dodge Stratus sitting in the park took off down Habersham Street heading towards Stephenson Avenue. A few minutes later, that same officer noticed the Dodge Stratus stopped at the intersection of Habersham and Stephenson and the car was on fire. At that time, the driver jumped out and ran but was later caught and arrested at a nearby Motel 6 parking lot. Charges are now pending against him.

No one was injured during this incident.

Police continue to investigate and are asking anyone with information to contact police.
