DANVILLE, Va – Two men were arrested after wrecking their car at the end of a high speed chase in Danville Friday afternoon.
Danville Police attempted to stop a black Dodge Charger on Franklin Turnpike near the city limits at 3:45 p.m. The Charger did not stop and turned onto Orphanage Road at a high rate of speed into Pittsylvania County.
