A Columbia man has been arrested after a car chase from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and crashing into multiple parked cars early Saturday morning.

According to a release from the Jefferson City Police Department, at 2:13 a.m. Travion Reams, 30, was driving the 2006 Ford Fusion with passenger Antoinette Jones, 29, away from a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper near E Dunklin St. and Adams St. in Jefferson City.

He then drove off the side of the road hitting a GMC Terrain, causing a domino effect as the GMC hit into a Nissan Frontier, which pushed into a Hyundai Santa Fe and then hit a Chevrolet Colorado. The Ford Fusion spun from impact, striking the Chevrolet, before stopping facing west in the eastbound lane.

Reams was arrested on scene for felony resisting arrest by fleeing, felony driving while intoxicated with serious injury, careless driving and resisting arrest, according to a highway patrol arrest report. Reams was taken to University Hospital by EMS for moderate injuries. Jones was transported to a hospital in Columbia by ambulance for serious injuries.

The roadway was closed for about three hours for the Jefferson City Police Department Traffic Unit to investigate the crash, at the request of MSHP.
