Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia and Lexington police are searching for a suspect who crashed after a chase Wednesday afternoon.

When officers ran the vehicle's tag through their database, they say they determined the vehicle was stolen.
They continued to pursue the car until it went along Farrow Road in Columbia; at that point, officers broke off the pursuit because traffic was too heavy.

Officers searched for him for a while, but were not able to locate the man.
