IRMO, SC (WIS) -

Two adults and a juvenile have been taken into custody following a police chase in Irmo.

Captain Courtney Dennis of the Irmo Police said officers were informed that a vehicle was stolen around 4 p.m. and taken through town. When the officers found the vehicle and tried to initiate a traffic stop, the driver refused to pull over leading authorities on a chase. The pursuit ended at the 2900 block of Dreher Shoals Road where the driver lost control of the vehicle and crashed. 

The driver and one of the two passengers ran away from the crash, but officers were able to quickly detain him after a short chase. The third passenger, a 16-year-old female, stayed with the vehicle. Each person in the vehicle was taken to a local hospital to receive medical attention for non-life-threatening injuries. 

The passenger who ran has been identified as Kenneth Kitchens. He has been charged by Irmo Police for failure to stop on police command and has been taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center for booking. The 16-year-old female passenger was released to her parent. 

A portion of Dreher Shoals Road is blocked off and traffic is being rerouted as the South Carolina Highway Patrol continues to investigate the incident. The Lexington County Sheriff's Department is also assisting with the investigation. 

WIS News 10 will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
