Dunbar , Kanawha County , West Virginia

Police said a driver faces several charges after leading Dunbar police on a chase early Wednesday morning.

Officers said they were trying to pull a male driver over on Roxalana Road about 3 a.m., when the man failed to stop and ran his truck into several parked cars. Four cars parked at Roxalana Apartments were damaged when the driver crashed through a fence. Two were hit by the man's truck while the other two were damaged from flying debris. One of those cars belonged to Skyler Cohen's fiance.

"A car was on top of my fiance's hood," said the Roxalana Apartments resident. "Just gotta [sic] wait to get some insurance. We have to talk to the insurance people to see if they can pay for anything."

Officers told Eyewitness News the driver was ejected from his truck but was alert when paramedics arrived. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to be charged upon his release.

Police said the unidentified man faces several charges including fleeing and driving on a revoked license for driving under the influence.
