Columbia, SC (November 4, 2022) – A high-speed chase in the Columbia area on Thursday, November 3, resulted in injuries after the driver crashed into a residence on Piney Grove Road.
A deputy attempted a traffic stop after almost being hit by a vehicle at the corner of Piney Grove and Broken Hill Roads. The driver of the blue Ford Fusion did not stop and instigated a chase that went across Interstate 26. The motorist lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a home at the 900 block of Piney Grove Road.
The driver fled on foot. Authorities were called to the scene, and one person at the home was transported to Prisma Health Richland for treatment. The driver, identified as 37-year-old Venson Outen, was later apprehended.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.

It is alarming how much speed contributes to accident statistics. Accidents are more likely to occur as a result of excessive speed, and they are also more likely to be fatal. Although speed limits are established for ideal conditions, each driver must alter their speed in accordance with the real state of the road. Thousands are killed annually in high-speed crashes.
