HENRICO, Va. -- A car chase that took police through two counties ended around 8:30 a.m. Friday in Henrico, but police are still searching for the driver.

Virginia State Police and Henrico County officer searched for the driver, who abandoned a vehicle in a Henrico neighborhood.

Sergeant Vick with state police said that they know who the individual is and are working to obtain warrants to arrest the individual. That person currently remains at large.

In New Kent, VSP tried to pull over the driver of the 2006 Ford pickup, who police said was traveling 100 m.p.h. in a 70 m.p.h. zone. The pickup first pulled over near the 217 mile marker off of Interstate 64, but police said that the driver then sped off.

The chase ended off of Willis Church Road and New Market, not far from Richmond Battlefield Park, when the driver lost control, said police, and crashed into a yard at the intersection.

The driver took off on foot. Police swarmed near the house seen in the image, and a tow truck hauled away the red pickup.

Police then put a K-9 unit into the field to search for the driver, but they were not found.  Police are now working to get warrants for their arrest.
