      Police chase ends in a Florence neighborhood

      A police chase ended Monday in a residential community on Wingate Avenue in North Florence, according to Major Michael Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office.

      Nunn said deputies tried to stop a man driving a 2014 Dodge Charger at North Irby Street and Wilson Road for a traffic violation, but the man kept going.

      He finally came to a stop on Wingate Avenue and ran out of his car, Nunn said.

      He added the man's car was still in gear and rolled into a fence.

      Deputies arrested the man following a foot chase, and he was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

      Nunn said the man will be booked into the Florence County Detention Center when he is released from the hospital.

      His name has not been released.

      More details on the specific charges filed against him will be released Tuesday.
