Seneca Woman Jailed Following Three County Chase

A woman is facing numerous charges from multiple jurisdictions after she allegedly led officers and deputies on a chase that spanned three Upstate counties. It all started on White Horse Road at 2:35 AM Thursday morning, when a Greenville County deputy pulled up to a red Chevy Sonic parked outside a local business with it’s passenger door open.

According to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, when the deputy approached, the driver, identified as 26-year-old Rachel Nichole Parsons of a Steve Nix Road address in Seneca, backed into the deputy’s patrol vehicle, then sped off toward Old Easley Highway. She crossed into Pickens County with deputies in pursuit, then approached Seneca on Highway 123 where Oconee County Sheriff’s Deputies picked up the chase. The chase finally ended on Radisson Road near Seneca.

In addition to numerous traffic violations ranging from reckless driving to disregarding stop signs, she is charged with possession of meth, possession of schedule 1 and 2 drugs, malicious injury to property, and bringing contraband across a guard line. She remains in custody at the Oconee County Detention Center pending bond and judicial proceedings.
