NORTH PEKIN, Ill. (AP) - A Missouri man has started an eight-year prison term for leading North Pekin police on a high-speed chase and seriously injuring his wife in the resulting crash.

The Pekin Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/1rU7GD2 ) Ronald Carey pleaded guilty to four felony counts including aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol causing an accident and bodily harm.

His 32-year-old wife was hospitalized following the May 29 crash.

Police say they followed Carey’s car after gas station employees reported he repeatedly punched her in the face. Police say their car topped 100 mph on a highway. They were both ejected from the car when it crashed.

Carey was given credit for 98 days he served in custody before his guilty plea. He also could receive credit for each day served with good behavior.
