NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston man accused of leading police on a chase and injuring a pregnant woman and her 9-year-old child last September is set to appear in court to face new federal charges in the incident.

Court records state that 24-year-old Cleo Williams was charged on Feb. 12 with possession with intent to distribute cocaine. According to federal records, Williams was also charged with two weapons charges in regards to a pistol and ammunition that were found in his car in the September 2012 incident.

Court records indicate Williams will appear in court Thursday to be arraigned on those new charges.

Williams is accused of leading police on a car chase in North Charleston on Sept. 6 and crashing into a car that flipped over and injured a 27-year-old pregnant woman and her 9-year-old child.

It all started during a multi-jurisdictional drug investigation when North Charleston police officers say they attempted to stop Williams' vehicle as it was traveling on Highway 52.

At one point, police say Williams traveled on Rivers Avenue in the wrong direction at a high rate of speed. As officers attempted to locate the vehicle, investigators spotted a collision involving four cars on Rivers Avenue past Otranto Road.

According to police, Williams' car collided with three vehicles, one of which rolled over on its side. The occupants of that vehicle, a pregnant woman and her 9-year-old child, were transported to Trident Hospital for minor injuries.

A police report states that Williams fled on foot from the vehicle, but witnesses pointed officers in the direction of the suspect and he was caught following a brief foot pursuit

Investigators say a large sum of money and a handgun were located in Williams' vehicle.
