UPDATE 6/25/14 @ 8:40 p.m.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- While the car involved in a high-speed pursuit through part of Cabell County and Huntington has been seized by deputies, the driver remained on the run Wednesday night.

The car, an orange Pontiac Grand Prix., was going more than 100 mph on W.Va. 2.

It headed south toward Huntington, and the driver eventually dumped the car in a parking lot behind the Rite Aid drugstore along Hal Greer Boulevard in Huntington. That happened around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

"I was walking down Hal Greer and, all the sudden, I felt a huge rush," witness Jack Levine said. "And I was like, is that someone speeding really loud, like really fast, and I was looking, and I was like that was crazy. And I heard a bunch of sirens and I turn and I look at my friend, and I'm like that's weird and I see this orange car take off."

The driver took off running north in that area. That person has not been located yet.
