2 arrested after traffic stop, chase, crash, manhunt in Florence

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A man and a woman driving a suspected stolen vehicle were arrested after fleeing from a traffic stop on South Irby Street in Florence Thursday morning before crashing into three other vehicles.

At about 9 a.m., deputies with the Florence County Sheriff's Office tried to stop the vehicle on South Irby St. near Third Loop Road, according to a news release from the FCSO. The driver, 19-year-old Domerious Deon Allsbrooks, refused to stop, and led deputies on a pursuit. The vehicle then collided with three other vehicles at Second Loop Road.

Allsbrooks then fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later on Church Street after a brief manhunt, the release states.

A second suspect, 21-year-old Aundrea Michelle Herbert, a passenger who remained in the vehicle, was taken into custody at the scene of the crash, officials stated. No FCSO vehicles were involved in the crash.

Investigators charged Allsbrooks with failure to stop for a blue light, three counts of malicious injury to personal property, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and two counts of burglary.

Herbert has been charged with burglary and receiving stolen goods.

The investigation into the matter is ongoing by the FCSO.
