Overnight Police Chase Sends Suspect To Hospital

Pikeville Police say a chase Wednesday night ended with the suspect crashing his car.

Officers say they tried to pull over a car for a traffic violation on U.S. 23 when the driver wouldn't stop and instead took off at a high rate of speed. The chase went on for a few miles until police say the driver, Jerome Norman, lost control off the car and crashed. He was flown out to a Huntington, West Virginia hospital and is in fair condition. A woman in the car wasn't injured.

Officers say Norman will be charged when he's released from the hospital.
