Patrol: Driver flees, crashes with 1-year-old in car

ST. PETERSBURG — A man faces charges of fleeing to elude and child endangerment after leading state troopers on a brief chase Wednesday with a 1-year-old in the car, state police said.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, authorities tried to pull over Horace L. Granville, whose age and hometown were not provided, on northbound Interstate 275 near Roosevelt Boulevard for driving 84 mph in a 65 mph zone. But he led them on an one-minute pursuit until he crashed into an utility pole, the patrol said.

Granville then left his car and ran across the northbound lanes to the median, authorities said.

He was taken in custody without incident and transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash.

There were three other occupants in the vehicle, including a child. None were injured.
