CAROLINE, VA (WWBT) - A myriad of drugs with an approximate street value of $80,000 was seized from a car that led Virginia State Police troopers on a two-county pursuit before crashing in Caroline Thursday evening.

According to Virginia State Police, Jesus J. Isaguirre, 22, of Green Acres, Fla., and two male passengers, Fleurisson Lebrun, 23, of West Palm, Fla., and Noel Mendoza,  21, of Green Acres, Fla., are facing numerous charges, including illegal possession of cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs; transporting narcotics with the intent to distribute; and possession of a firearm while in possession of illegal drugs, among others, which all began after a trooper attempted to stop the car Isaguirre was driving.

The situation unfolded along Interstate 95 in Spotsylvania just before 5 p.m Thursday as a trooper monitored traffic in the area. During their patrol, a 2010 Mercedes driven by Isaguirre was clocked on the trooper's radar at 85 m.p.h. as it traveling north on I-95.

That trooper pulled onto the interstate and activated his lights and sirens in an attempt to stop the Mercedes.

VSP said Isaguirre refused to stop and sped away at a high rate of speed. The car then exited the highway at Exit 118 and continued along U.S. Route 1, speeding southbound at speeds "in excess of 100 m.p.h."

Police said the driver then lost control of his Mercedes, ran off the left side of the road, struck an embankment and overturned.

Isaguirre, Lebrun, and Mendoza were all taken to Mary Washington Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Investigators ended up seizing the Mercedes driven by Isaguirre, which contained heroin, cocaine, marijuana, LSD, and prescription drugs with "with a total approximate street value of $80,000," Virginia State Police reported.

In addition, two handguns were also seized from the vehicle.

All three men are behind bars at Rappahannock Regional Jail.
