CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) – The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office says they have arrested a man after a car chase caused two other crashes and left a 2-year-old victim with a broken femur.

Michael Brent Keith, 46, has been arrested for driving under the influence, failure to stop for blue lights and three counts of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.

The incident began around 8:30 p.m. Friday when deputies say they attempted to stop Keith in a 2020 U-haul van for reckless driving.

When deputies turned on their lights to attempt a traffic stop, they say Keith blatantly disregarded them and sped up to 95 mph in an attempt to evade authorities.
