ST. ALBANS, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man from St. Albans faces criminal charges after a crash in Kanawha County.

The accident happened aroun 8:00 p.m. Thursday along Route 60 in St. Albans.

According to a news release, Angelo Miller IV, 31, of St. Albans, was weaving in and out of traffic when a deputy pulled him over near the St. Albans-Nitro Bridge.

Due to heavy traffic in the area, the deputy asked Miller to pull over in an adjacent parking lot, but when the traffic light turned green, Miller took off, according to deputies.

Deputies say Miller took off west on Route 60, passed several cars and ran a red light before slamming into the rear of a black pick-up truck, causing it to flip over. Miller's car then crossed the median and hit a concrete barrier.

The driver of the pickup truck, Paul Parog, 18, of Hurricane, was taken to the hospital. His injuries did not appear life threatening.

Miller was charged with fleeing in a vehicle causing injury.

Deputies say Miller had active warrants out of Putnam County for violating a family violence petition and failure to pay child support.

Addiditional charges will be filed against Miller once all the evidence and tests are complete, according to the news release.
