This is on top of the nearly two dozen charges he already had pending.

Fighting Crime does not usually post the names of vehicle accident victims. However, this person took it upon himself to lead NCSO in a chase, which was criminal acitivity, and put the lives of many others in jeopardy. Being that this person was committing a crime by fleeing, ultimately resulting in a crash and that he was wanted on several outstanding warrants, his name and information was shared. No photos of the accident scene will be posted.

When suspects or victims are treated at ANY hospital we no longer share the name of the hospital in which the person is being treated. We only say that they are being treated at a "local hospital".

Two other individuals were in the vehicle and their names have NOT been shared.
