Man accused of fleeing police, causing crash that hurt 3
WALTHOURVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A man is accused of fleeing a traffic stop, leading Georgia authorities on a car chase, causing a crash and then fleeing on foot while carrying his child.
WTOC-TV reports 36-year-old Ryan Storts was arrested on charges including fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer in the chase that seriously wounded two women and a state trooper. State police said Monday that the Ohio man also is charged with offenses including reckless driving.
Authorities say Storts fled the traffic stop last week and swerved into oncoming traffic, causing the crash. They say he then fled on foot with the child, and the two were found walking down Highway 84. Authorities say they later searched Storts’ home and found a marijuana grow operation.
It’s unclear if Storts has a lawyer.
