High-speed chase ends with collision

Richmond County sheriff's deputies chased a man in a stolen pickup at speeds topping 110 mph this morning before the driver crashed into another car and rolled his vehicle, according to Sgt. Robbie Silas.


The pursuit started about 10:40 a.m. when a deputy attempted to pull over Nathaniel Warren outside the Augusta Lodge in the 1500 block of Gordon Highway because of suspected drug activity, Silas said.

Warren accelerated the 2007 Ford F-150 and led deputies on a chase over roughly 15 miles that ended with the collision near Fort Gordon's Gate 5 on Tobacco Road, Silas said.

Warren and the car's driver were treated for minor injuries at Eisenhower Army Medical Center before Warren was booked on charges of fleeing to elude, driving under the influence, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license and theft by receiving.

Silas said Warren had a history of fleeing from authorities and had been shot at the end of a previous chase.
