Eyewitnesses say the driver of a stolen S-U-V fleeing from a state trooper, crashed into this green Buick at the intersection of Highway 80 and Robinson Road.

A female passenger suffered minor injuries. First responders had to use the jaws of life to cut her out of the vehicle.

The chase continued south to the Summer Tree Apartments on Chadwick Drive.

The driver, identified as 42-year-old Kenyatta Garrett, jumped out of the vehicle, but was quickly caught and taken into custody.

He's being charged with multiple traffic felonies, including fleeing and officer, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving with no license.
