Chase on I-20 ends with crash into gas station sign, GSP says

A chase between a Georgia state trooper and a Lawrenceville man ended with the suspect crashing at a gas station Wednesday morning, officials said.

The trooper initially tried to stop 29-year-old Fidel Corfah on I-20 East near Capitol Avenue, the Georgia State Patrol said. He allegedly did not stop and sparked a chase on the interstate into DeKalb County.

Corfah took the exit at Gresham Road, but sped through the intersection and struck the sign at a Texaco gas station, the GSP said.

He is charged with reckless driving, fleeing and attempting to elude, driving with a suspended license, speeding, hands-free violation and obstruction (giving false name and date of birth).

The GSP also said he has warrants out for his arrest in Gwinnett County.
