KEYSER - A high speed chase with speeds reaching 100 mph started in Keyser late Tuesday and ended in Maryland when the vehicle crashed into a ditch.
According to the Keyser City Police, an officer was on routine patrol Tuesday,  at 10:36 p.m., when he observed a black Mitsubishi Eclipse on South Main Street being driven by Winston Redman, who had active warrants through the KPD.
Redman, 33, of Keyser, was wanted for malicious wounding stemming from a previous incident.
Redman turned onto South Mineral Street (Route 220), and when the officer turned on his emergency lights and attempted to pull the vehicle over, Redman sped up, passing cars and heading into Maryland.
Officers communicated with Allegany County in reference to the pursuit. The vehicle continued on Route 220 until Redman lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road over an embankment. He then continued to drive the vehicle until it got stuck in a ditch.
Redman was able to exit the vehicle on his own and was taken into custody without further incident. He  was observed to have a cut on the top of his head, but stated that he was fine. Allegany County alerted an ambulance to the scene.
There was an unnamed female occupant in the car as well.
Redman is currently being held in the Allegany Detention Center as a fugitive from Mineral County.
Allegany County and the Mineral County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the pursuit.
