Austin Lener Mosley, 23, of Williamston was taken into custody following an early morning pursuit Wednesday that ended in a crash in Williamston. According to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, the vehicle involved did fit the description of a vehicle involved in a recent robbery, but it was later determined that the gold Honda Accord Mosley was driving was not involved in the robbery incident. However he is facing six charges in connection with the chase incident.
Mosley has been charged with failure to stop for blue lights, driving under the influence, driving under suspension-3rd or subsequent offense, possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
According the the sheriff’s office, at approximately 2:50 am Wed., an Anderson County Deputy attempted to stop a speeding vehicle matching the description of one used in a recent strong arm robbery. The vehicle failed to stop which resulted in a pursuit that began on Youth Center Road in Belton and led into the city limits of Williamston where the driver lost control of the vehicle, drove through a ditch, and crashed into the car wash building at Main Street and Greenville Drive.
Three subjects were inside the vehicle at the time of the collision.
Williamston Fire Department responded to the scene and technical rescue was requested to assist in extricating two subjects trapped in the vehicle.
The driver, identified as Mosley, was taken into custody. The other two occupants were transported by EMS to Anderson Area Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.
