Two people are dead and two others hospitalized after a late-night chase in Hanahan.

It began near Foster Creek Road around 10:00pm Wednesday as officers were on routine patrol near Tanner Plantation. A Hanahan officer attempted to stop the car after the plates came back stolen.  Dash cam video shows the driver appears to be stopping for the officer before speeding up and taking off.

Speeds reached up to 100 MPH before the car left the road, overcorrected, then flipped, throwing three of the four occupants from the vehicle. Only the driver had been wearing a seatbelt.

Inside the wreckage police found two stolen guns, an open bottle of wine and other goods recently reported stolen in the Hanahan area. Officers searched the area again Thursday afternoon looking for a third gun. They say three guns were stolen from the Hanahan area home on Tuesday, but only two were found at the crash site. 

When the officer approached the vehicle after the accident, the 17 year old driver of the vehicle asked about the condition of the other passengers, "Are they ok?" The officer responded, "That, you don't need to be worried about that."

A passenger in the car, 19-year-old Patrick Graham was pronounced dead at the scene; 18-year-old Martin Pinckney died on the way to the hospital.

The driver, 17-year-old Shaylynn Nichole Capers, will face several charges including failure to stop for blue lights when she is released from the hospital. A third passenger, 19-year-old Jimarie Whitehead will also face charges when released.  A search of court records shows Whitehead and Graham both had criminal histories including burglary and armed robbery charges.
