Travis Dale Coulson, 37, of Galax has been taken into custody by the Galax Police Department after chasing a man in a car off of Greenville Road and causing the other driver to crash into a home at the corner of Kenbrook Drive, according to Chief Rick Clark.

The pickup truck Coulson was driving also crashed at the corner of Kenbrook and Greenville. He was taken into custody at the scene.

Coulson was wanted for malicious wounding after he allegedly assaulted a woman in the Galax Food City parking lot with a knife before throwing her out of his car on Dec. 29. Police are consulting with the commonwealth's attorney before further charges are made.

The driver of the car that struck a house is in the hospital, said Clark.
