High-speed chase ends with crash in city

An early morning police chase Friday in Hagerstown ended after a man's vehicle careened into a car carrying two passengers, sending them both to the hospital with minor injuries, police said.

Adam Matthew Husk, 22, believed to be from Hedgesville, W.Va., faces 15 charges, including two counts of fleeing and eluding police, reckless driving, driving on a revoked license and three hit-and-run charges.

After Husk was arrested, he was tested Husk for alcohol at the barrack, but his .01 blood alcohol content was well below the legal limit of .08. Police said Husk's exact address was not immediately known.

The women who were in the Honda, Rebekah Ann Cook, 19, and Marquita J. Polhill, 19, both of Waynesboro, were treated and released, a spokeswoman at Washington County Hospital said.
