Carthage Man Wrecks After Short Police Chase
A Carthage man who tried to elude Pinebluff police this morning ended up running his car into a ditch off of U.S. 1.
David Bradley Ragsdale, 48, also ended up with 10 charges related to the approximate two-mile chase and a broken wrist, according to Sgt. Chris Sanderson of the Pinebluff Police Department.
Pinebluff Officer Donald Moore was running a routine patrol, with radar, around 5:30 a.m. when he clocked Ragsdale going 64 in a 55 mph zone on U.S. 1, Sanderson said.
Moore turned on his blue lights, and Ragsdale failed to stop, cutting down a side street in Pinebluff where he allegedly ran two stop signs on his way back to U.S. 1. Ragsdale eventually tried to turn left onto South Pinehurst Street off of U.S. 1 and his car ended up in a ditch, Sanderson said.
Ragsdale, of 114 Sullivan Drive, Carthage, faces 10 charges, including driving while impaired, misdemeanor flee to elude arrest with a motor vehicle, reckless driving to endanger, resisting a public official, driving while license revoked and going 74 mph in a 55 mph zone.
