Charges After Crash, Chase

A 26-year-old Niles man is facing charges following a crash and chase with police on Wednesday. The Cass County Sheriff’s Department tells us it all started around 7:40 p.m. when deputies were called out to investigate a crash between two vehicles on US-12 near Conrad Road in Milton Township. Neither of the drivers were hurt, but one of them, the 26-year-old from Niles, drove away from the scene when the deputies arrived.
