The chase came to a halt early Sunday morning when Officer Ron Brown lost control of his squad car and crashed into a house not far from Highway 74. He sustained injury to his ribcage and was taken to Carolina Medical Center for treatment.The driver being pursued crashed his vehicle shortly after Brown. The driver was arrested and charged with reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and speeding. The driver did not receive any DWI charges.
