Estimated read time 2 min read

A high-speed chase initiated by the Georgia State Patrol (GSP) ended in a crash involving a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. The pursuit, which unfolded on Interstate 20 eastbound near Moreland Avenue, resulted in the driver’s arrest after a series of dangerous maneuvers.

The chase began around 6:30 a.m. when troopers clocked the Jeep traveling at 86 mph in a 60 mph zone. Attempts by the GSP to pull over the driver were met with increased speed and evasion. The driver veered off at the Glenwood Ave exit, leading the trooper on a perilous pursuit through multiple red lights and onto Candler Road, heading back toward the interstate.

A recent Nashville street takeover featured random shooting.

Continuing the pursuit, the driver re-entered I-20 westbound and exited at Moreland Ave, turning onto Memorial Drive. According to the GSP, the driver aggressively sped through several more red lights before ultimately losing control of the vehicle. The high-speed chase reached its climax when the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT crashed into a tree and a utility pole at the intersection of Memorial and Martin Street.

Following the crash, the trooper observed the driver exiting the SUV and attempting to flee on foot. However, the pursuit ended with the troopers successfully apprehending the driver, whose name has yet to be released.

The driver now faces multiple charges, including felony fleeing, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana (less than an ounce), and various traffic charges.
