STAFFORD, VA (WWBT) - A man is facing multiple charges after crashing his vehicle during a high-speed chase and running from police on foot.

Jackson sped off with a 5-month pregnant passenger in the car. Police called for additional units.

While making a sharp turn around Truslow Road, Jackson crashed the vehicle into a parked car. He then ran on foot towards the woods.

Jackson was eventually caught and taken into custody.

After a search, deputies found a small bag of marijuana and an empty container of alcohol. He was also driving on a suspended license due to previous DUI charges.

Jackson is charged with abduction, resisting arrest, destruction of property, driving with a revoked license, driving after forfeiture of license, driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, eluding police, hit-and-run, reckless driving and several traffic offenses.
