A 26-year-old Milwaukee man suffered non-life-threatening injuries after he crashed the car he was driving Wednesday just after law enforcement officials terminated a car chase on Interstate 94.

The crash happened at 10:50 a.m. while Terrence Anderson drove his car southbound on the I-94 on-ramp at Highway KR, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

Just prior to the crash, a deputy with the sheriff’s department had tried to stop the car. When the deputy approached Anderson in his car, he sped away. The deputy got into his squad car and pursued Anderson, but the deputy had to terminate the chase because Anderson was speeding in heavy traffic. After the pursuit was terminated, Anderson exited the Interstate. But he didn’t stop at a stop sign and tried to get back onto the Interstate.

Law enforcement officials conducted a criminal history and discovered that he had an open felony warrant through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. A charge of fleeing and eluding a police officer and several traffic violations has been submitted to the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
