Driver treated for injuries after chase in 3 counties

Posted: Updated:

Authorities said they believe alcohol have been involved in a high-speed chase Monday night that went through three counties.

The chase ended with a crash, and the suspect is being treated for injuries.

The chase started late Monday night in McIntosh County, when police saw a driver run a red light. Police said they tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver refused to stop.

Police used stop sticks twice, but the vehicle kept going. A deputy in Liberty County then used the PIT maneuver, forcing the driver to crash along Highway 17 in Richmond Hill.

The driver was airlifted to a hospital.
