Deputies looking for two men involved in chase through two counties

Florence County sheriff's deputies are searching a wooded area off Olanta Highway in Florence County for two men who led them on a chase through two counties.

Officers say the chase ended when the men wrecked their SUV on Olanta Highway just after 3 p.m.

Deputies on scene say the men stole a chainsaw from a Darlington County business and officers began to chase the men when they matched the vehicle description from the burglary to the SUV they were driving.

Officers tried to stop the men but they refused, which is when the chase ensued.

Florence County deputies got involved in the chase when it reached Interstate 95.
