A woman who led state troopers on a high-speed car chase through Horry County Saturday afternoon before crashing in front of Pirates Voyage has been charged with driving under the influence and several other counts, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Cpl. Sonny Collins said Claudine Danieleski was the driver arrested in connection with the case. Jail records show the 49-year-old Little River woman was charged with driving under the influence, second offense, two counts of assault while resisting arrest, two counts of hit-and-run charges, failure to stop for a blue light and possession of less than a gram of methamphetamine or cocaine base.

Troopers got a call around 3 p.m. about a reckless driver in a neighborhood off Carolina Forest Boulevard.

When a trooper spotted the vehicle, it sped away and ended up on S.C. 31 traveling in the wrong direction.

The driver exited off S.C. 31 and troopers lost sight of the vehicle, but Horry County police found it a short time later, and the driver crashed the car.

Danieleski was booked into jail after being released from the hospital, Collins said. She remained held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center at the time of this report.
