Police say 25-year-old Christopher Todd DeWeese drove off at a high rate of speed after an officer on foot recognized him at Mill Mountain Park.
The officer returned to his patrol car and followed the truck, finding the wreckage about half a mile away.
Two passengers in the truck were trapped, police say they were burned beyond recognition and have not been identified.
DeWeese was thrown clear of the wreck. He was taken to the hospital, but his injuries are NOT life threatening.
He was wanted for a probation violation, and for failure to appear in court. He will be charged in connection with the accident once he's released from the hospital.
