A police chase ended in a crash overnight in Wheeling.

It started on W.Va. 2 northbound just after midnight when the Ohio County Sheriff's Department attempted to pull over a driver for an expired license plate.

That chase ended with a crash on U.S. 250, just before the McColloch Street exit.

The driver was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital with serious injuries.

The area where the crash took place had to be shut down for almost 4 hours while officers investigated and cleaned up the roadway.
