Posted: Updated:

SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Two people were injured in a crash in Smith County Sunday night, and a driver is facing charges after leading a deputy on short chase.

The crash happened around 7:00 on FM 344. The chase started after a  deputy tried to stop this a driver for keeping his high beams on. The driver, David Hubbard, kept going as a deputy tried to stop him, leading the deputy to believe the man may have been driving under the influence.

Hubbard, kept driving ultimately crashing in the woods. Hubbard was flown to a hospital by helicopter with non-life threatening injuries. A female passenger was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The Department of Public Safety is investigating the collision. Hubbard has not been taken into custody at this time, however he is facing numerous criminal charges, including a possible outstanding state warrant for parole violation.

Hubbard is suspected by the Department of Public Safety of leaving the scene of a head on accident earlier last week on Highway 110 south of Whitehouse in Smith County. That incident remains under investigation by DPS at this time.
