3 teens arrested in stolen car chase; 2 on the run

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Two teenagers are on the run after a chase along a busy highway in Sandy Springs.

The steep woodline that troopers are surprised anyone could get through, on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4 p.m. 

Sgt. Stacey Collins with Georgia State Patrol told Channel 2's Steve Gehlbach the chase started Wednesday morning when Atlanta police spotted a stolen Toyota Corolla on Piedmont Road in Buckhead.

Georgia State Patrol joined in the chase and eventually performed a PIT maneuver on I-285 to spin the car out.


After the car spun out, Collins said five teenagers in the car jumped into a thick, wooded area of a creek and fences behind a neighborhood next to the highway.

Collins said two teenagers got away, but police caught three of the suspects -- a 15-year-old girl who was hurt in the fall and two others hours later.

Police said a teenage girl they found was a runaway from DeKalb County and was returned to her parents. Another teenager was not charged because he was not the driver.

When Georgia State Patrol troopers searched the car they found a stolen gun that was fully loaded.
