Early Monday morning, Dudley firefighters and an EMS unit were dispatched to a single vehicle accident at the intersection of Emmaus Church Road and Brewington Road. The vehicle had apparently failed to slow down for the intersection, struck a ditch and slammed into a tree. The driver of the vehicle had to be taken to the hospital. The crash ended a brief chase involving Wayne County authorities. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office had reportedly attempted to pull the vehicle over on Highway 13 South, but the driver did not stop and led deputies on the brief pursuit. The State Highway Patrol is investigating the accident, and the driver is expected to face multiple charges.
