Police chase ends in wreck

A police chase has ended in a wreck near Sumter Street at South Cashua Drive in Florence, according to Florence Police Major Carlos Raines.

Major Raines says an officer tried to stop a car for a traffic violation around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. When he called in the tag, the car came up as stolen out of Camden.

The driver took off, and a chase ensued. Raines said the driver then wrecked on Sumter Street.

Raines said at that point, the driver and another person jumped out of the car and ran into a wooded area. Officers are still looking for both of those people.

We will have more information as it becomes available.
