The Toyota refused to stop and increased speeds up to 100 miles per hour fleeing into Prince William County.

Once in Prince William County the Toyota left 66 turning onto Route 234 where the driver ran several stop lights and drove erratically in and out of traffic and used shoulders of the road to escape pursuit.

The driver eventually took the Toyota back onto 66 East where he collided with a police cruiser which forced the vehicle into an eastbound Subaru which ended the chase.

After the stop the driver, Juntae E. Williams of Baltimore Maryland was taken into custody and was transported to Prince William Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

A pregnant passenger of the Toyota was also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The 27-year-old Williams faces several charges including assault on a law officer and child endangerment due to the pregnant passenger who was not charged in the incident.

Additional charges are likely against Williams after further investigation revealed over a $1,000 in stolen merchandise in the Toyota.
