A pursuit that began in West Virginia after a traffic stop ended with one man dead in a reckless driving car accident.

A 39-year-old man left the scene after police pulled him over for a traffic stop. The man continued to travel on U.S. 340 and traveled through three different counties before his vehicle swerved, hit a curb and left the roadway.

The vehicle then struck a utility pole and another parked car before coming to a rest in front of a fence. Officials are continuing to investigate the accident.

Car accidents can be very dangerous, especially if someone is driving recklessly. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.
