    A 30-year-old Collin County man is in custody after police say he led officers on a pursuit Friday afternoon that ended in a multi-vehicle crash involving a school bus.

    Several charges against Adam Pigott are pending while police continue their investigation.

    Police said someone called 911 at about 2:30 p.m. to report a reckless driver in a pickup truck who was unable to maintain a single lane.

    The caller reported that at one point a group of other drivers attempted to block the pickup truck with their vehicles on Bethany Drive in Allen, but the truck continued on its way.

    Allen police then attempted to stop the truck but say Pigott would not pull over.

    Near the intersection of Central Expressway and West Spring Creek Parkway, Pigott's truck collided with at least three vehicles, including a Plano ISD school bus.

    The school district said later that one student was on board the bus at the time of the crash, and neither the student nor the bus driver was injured.

    Police officers removed Pigott from his truck as it caught fire, and he was transported to Plano Medical Center in a stable condition.

    Police previously told NBC 5 that the chase involved a suspected drunk driver, but further details on the investigation were not available Friday evening.
