FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A high speed chase ended with a car sinking in a local lake.
Forsyth County deputies said they clocked a car going 90 mph along Georgia 400 early Saturday morning and started chasing after them.
Deputies said the car reached speeds between 110 mph and 130 mph during the pursuit.
Eventually the car turned off the expressway onto Bald Ridge Marina Road.
The car sped through the barrier at the marina and into the parking lot. With nowhere to go, deputies said the driver got out of the car and ran.

The car was still rolling as the driver got out of the car. It hit another car and then drifted into the water, sinking to the bottom.
Police were able to arrest one of the people in the car almost immediately, but a K9 tracked down another suspect who was hiding under the deck of the marina.
The car was eventually pulled from the marina. “…Deputies learned it didn’t belong to the occupants but was borrowed from a friend,” deputies said in a news release.
The driver of the car, Edward Anthony, of Alpharetta, was charged with DUI drugs, obstruction, fleeing/attempting to elude, speeding, reckless driving and failure to report striking a fixed object.
The passenger, Angel De Los Santos Cruz, 19, of Johns Creek, was charged with obstruction.
