CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson City Police said an early morning car chase ended in a multiple vehicle crash that sent several people to the hospital.

Officers said they clocked a vehicle traveling 74 mph in a 25 mph speed zone just after midnight Sunday and attempted to pull the car over.

Officers said the car pulled over on the side of the road and then sped off on US 276 toward Anderson, sparking a chase.

At the intersection of US 178, police said the suspect crashed into other vehicles.

Several people, including the suspect, were taken to the hospital with injuries.

Officers said they later learned that the suspect had been involved in a hit and run on US 76 just before Clemson officers witnessed the speeding violation.

The SC Highway Patrol MAIT Team was called in to handle the investigation.

The name of the driver has not released because police said no charges have been filed at this time.
