Passenger injured, man facing drug crime after police chase

Physicians who were treating a 28-year-old woman who was injured in a car accident after a police chase reportedly found a significant amount of methamphetamine inside her body. That meth was not inside her system; rather, 19 grams of the drug were reportedly stored inside one of the victim's body cavities. That woman has a criminal history that includes drug crimes, including possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Authorities report that the woman was a passenger in a vehicle that was fleeing police. That chase began in Cleveland County, South Carolina, after undercover officers had purchased meth from the 28-year-old male driver of that vehicle. Deputies attempted to arrest the man, but he raced off with the woman still in the vehicle. Official reports show that deputies had laid spikes to damage the driver's tires, which would cause the vehicle to stop.

Instead of driving over the spikes, the man reportedly attempted to avoid the strip, but he lost control of his vehicle, striking a pickup truck. Both the male driver and the female passenger suffered serious injuries in the crash, though the driver is reportedly in stable condition. He is facing drug related charges including selling meth, possessing meth with the intent to sell it, careless and reckless driving and a variety of other criminal charges.

Both the man and the woman have criminal histories that include methamphetamine possession, but the man has been charged with possession with the intent to distribute meth in the past. Additional drug related charges on the man's criminal record include possession of marijuana. Those arrests occurred between 2003 and 2012.

Criminal defendants who are facing serious allegations of drug crimes may benefit from the legal protections afforded by a criminal defense attorney. These professionals may work to protect defendants' rights throughout criminal legal proceedings. They can also provide additional information about legal options, including plea agreements and other strategies.
