Woman Crashes Car in Police Chase–SC Car Accident Attorneys

A woman is facing multiple charges after an SUV crash during a police chase that resulted in the death of her daughter.

When deputies tried to pull over the mother for a simple traffic violation on Interstate 85, she led them on a chase that reached speeds of over 100 mph.  During the chase, the mother’s 7-year-old daughter threw marijuana from the SUV that was later recovered.

Immediately after the crash, the mother’s family and friends told deputies that the child was the mother’s niece and gave an incorrect name for the girl.  On Tuesday, however, the Coroner reported that because of the hospitals privacy policies and a “lack of cooperation from the child’s mother,” the wrong name and relationship had been reported.

The Coroner nevertheless has since determined the correct relationship of  between the mother and the child. The mother remains hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries.

The mother is now facing six charges in connection with the pursuit and crash, according to Sheriff Chuck Wright. The list includes: failure to stop for blue light, resulting in death; driving under suspension, third and subsequent; reckless driving; possession with intent to distribute marijuana; unlawful neglect of a child and an habitual traffic offender charge.

Once the mother has been released from the hospital, she will be transported to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center where the arrest warrants will be formally served.
