Deputies said the 30-year-old driver lost control and slammed into a tree near Fayetteville Road and Taylor Circle, killing him and his 28-year-old passenger. The driver, later identified as Jamaal Willis-Powell, was trapped in the mangled vehicle. His passenger, Jasmine Simone Hayes, was ejected from the car.
Willis-Powell had arrest warrants stemming from felony burglary charges out of Gwinnett County and Hayes was wanted on obstruction, theft by receiving and a weapons charge by Palmetto police, authorities said.
Investigators said the police chase lasted less than two minutes and ended 1.7 miles from where it began. The Georgia State Patrol is handling the crash investigation.
