ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania man who crashed after a high-speed chase had a 3-year-old and a pregnant woman in the car.

Authorities say 24-year-old Toryan L. White of Altoona allegedly fled a traffic stop at about 3 a.m. Friday.

The Altoona Mirror reports that White allegedly accelerated the SUV and later almost struck one of the officers' vehicles. Police say he ultimately struck a bridge and came to rest, then allegedly ran into the woods, leaving a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old son in the vehicle.

White is facing 32 different charges, including two felonies. He's being held in the Blair County Prison, unable to post $35,000 bond.

No attorney was listed on court papers, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 30.
