PICKENS, SC -

A armed robbery at a convenience store in the city of Easley led to a chase that ended in a wreck in Pickens County.

Chief Deputy Creed Hashe of the Pickens County Sheriff's Office said that sheriff's deputies were notified about a vehicle that was involved in an armed robbery at a convenience store in Easley just after 7 p.m. Tuesday night. About 15 minutes later, deputies saw a vehicle that matched the description of the car wanted in connection with the robbery and initiated a traffic stop.

According to Hashe, as a deputy approached the stopped car, the driver sped off and led deputies, state troopers and a Easley Police officer on a chase. The chase continued for about six miles and ended when the unidentified driver crashed the car into a power pole off of Highway 135 at Ruhamah Road.

Three people in the car were injured and transported to a local hospital. Their names and conditions were not immediately available.

Details surrounding the armed robbery were not immediately available and attempts to reach a spokesman for the Easley Police Department was unsuccessful.
