BRADLEY COUNTY, TN. (WRCB)-- A fiery crash in Bradley County claimed the life of a Charleston, Tennessee man Friday afternoon.

Our partners at the Chattanooga Times Free Press report 37-year-old Brian Moore was pronounced dead at the scene after a crash caused his Jeep Cherokee to erupt in flames. Moore was reportedly involved in a police chase that ended when he struck a concrete pillar, supporting the Harrison Pike over-pass.

Evie West, spokeswoman for the Cleveland Police Department, says Moore hit a city officer's patrol car at a gas station and took off. The officer managed to get the tag number from the suspect's vehicle.

West says the driver tried hitting another patrol car while fleeing the scene. She says the suspect was tossing beer bottles from the window of the Jeep before hitting the pillar.

The status of the Cleveland officers involved is unclear at this time.
