An Anderson Police Officer tried to pull a car over for speeding early Monday morning. Instead of pulling over, the driver took off and lead police on a chase into Greenville City where it crashed.

The chase started around Midnight Monday morning on Whitehall Road in Anderson. Police say the white Honda Accord was going 60 miles per hour in a 35 mile per zone around midnight on Monday. An officer tried to pull the driver over but the driver took off, tearing up Concord Avenue then onto Highway 81.

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office set up stop sticks at Massy Road and Highway 81 but the driver drove around them. Police say the driver ignored traffic lights and speed limits.

Anderson Police called the chase off around 1:00 A.M. because they say it got to be too dangerous. Around that same time the car crashed into gates at Miracle Hill's Donation Center and Thrift shop on Pete Hollis Highway.

Both bumpers were ripped off the car by the gate, but the driver kept going. The Accord was found crashed and abandoned a few miles away.
