BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — A Morgan County man faces charges after leading police on a high speed chase Wednesday.
Garland Miller, 36, allegedly tried to hit a Morgan County Sheriff’s Department cruiser head-on before fleeing from police at speeds of more than 100 mph according to a press release from Morgan County Sheriff K.C. Bohrer.
Miller was arrested in Frederick County, Va. and charged with felony fleeing and eluding, as well as multiple other traffic offenses.
The incident started when West Virginia State Police requested assistance with a fleeing motorist traveling south on U.S. 522.
A sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop the fleeing driver when the defendant attempted to strike the deputy head-on.
The release said Milller “drove at excessive speeds, ran countless vehicles off the roadway and endangered the lives of many motorists.”
