A Winterville man charged with driving while impaired led police on a chase before causing a crash that left four people seriously injured, according to Pitt County Court records.

The chase took place along N.C. 11 and Fire Tower Road and began about 6 p.m. on July 31.

Thomas who was driving a 2013 Mini Cooper was going 55 mph in a 35 mph zone and according to arrest warrants, was observed weaving in and out of traffic which officers said caused a "severe" motor vehicle accident involving four vehicles.

One of the vehicle was a rollover and several people had to be transported to the hospital for their injuries, according to an officer's citation.
