Varna man hospitalized after crashing into a tree

Posted by wlpo on April 9, 2012

A 911 call in Marshall County turned into a police chase and a fiery crash.

Sheriff’s deputies tried pulling over Dominic Ghighi of Varna early Sunday morning after finding out that Ghighi had been threatening to hurt himself and maybe others.

Police say Ghighi wouldn’t pullover and led them from Marshall County into Putnam County where he went off the road and hit a tree north of McNabb.

Firefighters had to pull Ghighi from his burning car.  He was eventually flown to St. Francis Medical Center where he’s in critical condition.

Police and the states attorney’s office are considering possible charges.
