GALLIPOLIS, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A two-county police chase ends with two people air lifted to the hospital.

The chase began in the city of Gallipolis and ended along a rural road in Meigs County Monday night.

The Ohio Highway Patrol says the incident began when a Galllipolis Police Officer saw Holly Rose, 33, of Vinton, Ohio buying items that could be used to make meth. The officer also determined Rose had an outstanding warrant for her arrest.

When the officer tried to stop the car that Rose was driving, she took off at high rate speed driving north on State Route 7.

An OHP Officer spotted the car on SR 7 near milepost 27 and initiated a pursuit. The pursuit then took the officers in Meigs County and Stories Run Road.

The Patrol says about 10 miles later, Rose lost control and crashed into two trees on Jessie Creek Road.

Rose and her passenger, Richard Camp, 33, of Vinton, were airlifted to Cabell Huntington Hospital where they are listed in serious condition.

OHP says both had incapacitating injuries. They say neither person was wearing a seat belt.

Gallipolis City Police say Rose faces charges of Felony Fleeing, Assembly of Meth Precursors, and various traffic offenses.
