Police car crashes in Victoria during vehicle chase

No injuries were reported after a car led police on a chase through Victoria, police said. A patrol car crashed during the chase.

When he came outside, a silver sedan was pushed into the exterior wall of his house, its doors ajar and interior empty.

Sgt. Justin Schubert said the car had crashed in the course of a chase with police that began about 7:40 a.m.

During that chase, one police patrol car had crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Halsey Street and East Crestwood Drive after attempting a turn too fast.

No one was injured, he said.

As of Thursday afternoon, Bedford remained in the jail, and a bond had not yet been set for him.

According to Victoria County criminal records, Bedford faces another charge of fleeing a police officer in October.
