DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Two people were arrested after a high-speed police chase connected to a car theft investigation Wednesday.
Police followed the car until it crashed near Memorial Drive and Rays Road, Parrish said. Neighbors described it as a hectic scene.
“Yeah, he crashed, and the police come chasing him with their guns,” witness Amber Rose told Channel 2’s Tom Jones.
News Chopper 2 flew over a wooded area where a crashed car was sitting shortly before noon. Jones asked one of the suspects what happened as he was placed in handcuffs at the scene.
“I don’t know. I just woke up,” the man said.
Police said the suspects also crashed into one of the responding officers during the chase, and she suffered minor injuries. That investigation caused a traffic backup near Interstate 285 and Memorial Drive during the lunchtime rush-hour.
