STAMFORD - Police say a man is facing several charges after he led them on a chase that ended in a head-on car crash in Stamford this morning.

It happened near High Ridge and Interlaken roads, according to authorities.

Police say a state trooper had pulled Greg McKeithen, 24, over for a traffic violation when he took off and led officers on a chase down the Merritt Parkway.

They say he got off onto High Ridge Road, slipped on an icy curve and hit a pole.

State police say it appears McKeithen ran because he was wanted for escaping from a halfway house in Waterbury.

McKeithen faced charges in Waterbury today and will face the Stamford charges separately.  He's being held on $100,000 bond.
