RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

South Carolina Highway Patrol says a number of phone calls about a reckless driver led them to an eventual pursuit of the driver that ended in a crash on I-77 on Saturday. 

Troopers said that they responded to the calls around 4:30 and spotted the driver, later identified as 17-year-old Carter Kendall, in Fairfield County driving 106 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour zone. 

The trooper attempted a traffic stop but says Kendall fled and a pursuit began. The pursuit continued into Richland County, where Kendall eventually crashed on I-77 near mile marker 20. 

Kendall, from Waxhaw, NC, was taken to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital by EMS with injuries. His condition is not known at this time and his charges are pending. 

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating this incident.
