GREENVILLE Co., S.C. (WSPA) — Troopers say a chase that started just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday resulted in a crash.

Troopers say the driver was being pulled over for running a red light. A chase started when he didn’t pull over, but it only lasted for about a minute.

Trooper Joe Hovis with the S.C. Highway Patrol says the driver went off the side of the road and crashed.

Two other passengers were in the car. One was taken to St. Francis Hospital by EMS to get checked out.

Troopers charged the driver with failure to stop for a blue light and DUI.

The driver is identified by the Highway Patrol as 21-year-old Jesse A. Cole.

He was booked into the Greenville County jail on Sunday.
