FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a high-speed chase through two counties ended with two patrol cars and two other vehicles wrecked, but no serious injuries.

Troopers said the chase began Saturday afternoon in Sumter County and continued up Interstate 95 into Florence County.

Investigators say the chase ended several miles east of I-95 in Florence, when Antonio Morrisey's car hit another vehicle and ran through a fence into a backyard. Two patrol cars were also damaged during the chase.

Troopers are trying to determine why Morrisey didn't stop for officers. He is charged with reckless driving, possession of a stolen vehicle, driving without a license, property damage and failure to stop for a blue light. It wasn't known if he had an attorney.
