CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County deputies say they have a helicopter in the air over West Ashley searching for a driver who ran after a chase ended in a crash in West Ashley.

Deputies and K-9 units searched the area with the help of the chopper, but so far no one has been found.

Knapp said a firearm believed to have been tossed by the driver was recovered.

The search is continuing in the area of I-526, he said.
