ALEXANDRIA, VA. — Virginia State Police say they've arrested a driver after a chase leading to a crash in Alexandria Monday.

De'Jon Kenney, 18, of Dumfries was charged with grand larceny, one felony count of hit-and-run, one felony count of eluding police, a misdemeanor count of eluding police, one felony count of maiming (for the passenger's injuries) and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Additional charges are pending.

Around 7:25 a.m., police responded to a stolen vehicle heading east on the Capital Beltway near the Van Dorn Street exit. As troopers began following the vehicle, the driver headed to the Eisenhower Avenue exit and ran a red light, police say.

Troopers attempted to pull the vehicle over to no avail. Kenney allegedly continued at a high speed along Eisenhower Avenue and hit a Lexus car. The crash caused both vehicles to run off the road. The suspect's stolen Hyundai struck a fire hydrant, slid up a grassy embankment, overturned and ended up in a commercial business parking lot in the 5600 block of Eisenhower Avenue. The Lexus hit a metal railing outside of a business. The Lexus driver was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
