The Man Who Caused So Much Trouble

We've got the mugshot of the driver who led police on a chase Tuesday along Wrightsboro Road, a chase that ended when the suspect smashed into a flat-bed truck carrying cases of water, juice and soda.

Victor James Evans was clearly injured in the accident and is pictured in a hospital gown. His mugshot shows multiple head wounds. The 32-year-old Augusta man was charged with disregarding a stop sign, fleeing and attempting to elude an officer, driving without a license and reckless driving.

The accident caused hundreds of drink bottles to litter the road after the Honda Accord hit the truck. The truck caught fire and was pushed through a yard into a neighbor's fence. A power pole was also split, causing a power outage in the area.

The driver of the truck, 72-year-old James Brown Sr. of Augusta, was treated for minor injuries at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

Authorities say a deputy began to chase the suspect's vehicle because the car matched the description of one used after a theft from the Family Dollar earlier in the day.

Traffic was tied up for hours on Wrightsboro Road following the wreck.
