ANDERSON (WSPA) – A man is under arrest after Anderson County deputies say they chased him from Belton to Williamston before he crashed into a building.
Deputies tried to pull over Austin Lener Mosley, 23, after saying he was speeding in a car that matched the description of a vehicle from a robbery Monday night. Mosely didn’t stop when sheriff’s deputies tried to pull him over on Youth Center Road in Belton around 2:50 a.m. Wednesday.
The pursuit continued to Williamston where we’re told Mosely lost control of the car, drove through a ditch and crashed into a car wash building on Main Street.
Mosely and a second person in the car were trapped and needed to be rescued by emergency workers. A third person was apparently able to get out.
Anderson County deputies arrested Mosely while the two other people in the car were sent to Anderson Area Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
Mosely is charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving under the influence, driving under suspension-3rd or subsequent offense, possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
He has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
It turns out the car – a gold Honda Accord – was not the one that was involved in a stabbing attack at a 7-11 store on Highway 81 on Tuesday night.
