HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two people are in custody after a car was trying to avoid police at speeds of 100 mph, ending in a rollover crash in Hendersonville.

The incident started on North Gallatin Pike in Nashville around 2:50 a.m. when police said the vehicle left a Daily's gas station in Rivergate without their headlights turned on.

A few minutes later the vehicle crashed on West Main Street while trying to get onto Vietnam Veterans Boulevard at exit three, causing the car to rollover.

The driver, Bobby Scott, 22, of Dunlap, TN, and passenger were able to crawl from the vehicle. The passenger walked back to the roadway and called police.  Scott collapsed a few feet from the vehicle.

Scott was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center, but his injuries are not life threatening.  The passenger did not have any major injuries.

Scott will face charges of driving under the influence (second offense), driving on a revoked license and reckless endangerment in Sumner County.

Metro police said they will also charge Scott with fleeing and eluding police/failure to stop.  Scott was wanted in Sequatchie County for violating probation.
