Man charged in fatal crash during S.C. police chase

The Associated Press

Greenville, N.C.- Police say a man who led officers on a chase that ended in a fatal crash has been charged with 10 counts of failure to stop for a blue light.

If convicted of the felony, William Taylor could face up to 25 years in prison, investigators said.

Deputies began chasing a white sports utility vehicle after a hit-and-run was reported to the Highway Patrol on Saturday. Investigators said the vehicle was driving erratically and riding on three flat tires.

The SUV crashed into a county van carrying older residents on an outing then hit a car driven by 44-year-old Antonio Mijangos-Canela of Greenville, who died of a severe brain injury. Ten people in the van were injured.

Investigators say Taylor was thrown from his SUV and trapped beneath it when it overturned in the crash. He remained in intensive care at Greenville Memorial Hospital Monday.
