GATE CITY, Va. — A motorist allegedly sped through a Tuesday afternoon law enforcement checkpoint in Weber City, sparking a chase that ended after he rammed four police cars and injured two Virginia State Police Troopers.

Details are still being gathered in the pursuit and subsequent crash, which occurred shortly before 2 p.m. The suspect was apprehended after allegedly ramming multiple police cars at the intersection of State Route 870 and Tomahawk Drive, just west of Gate City.

Scott County Sheriff John Puckett says two Virginia State Troopers were injured in that collision and have been transported to the hospital with injuries.
