Two people are on the run after an interstate chase stated Tuesday in downtown Atlanta and ended in Sandy Springs.
The pursuit kicked off about noon when state troopers with the Capitol Police Division tried to stop a Dodge Charger near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. and Northside drives. The Dodge was “driving recklessly,” according to the Georgia State Patrol.
Its driver did not stop and entered I-85 going north, a spokeswoman for the agency said. The chase continued onto Ga. 400 and ended when the Dodge exited at the Glenridge Connector.
During the chase, the suspects’ vehicle sideswiped another vehicle, the GSP said. Eventually, the driver pulled over near a guardrail, and the four people in the vehicle abandoned it.
“The four suspects exited the vehicle and entered into a wooded area,” Franka Young with the GSP said in an email.
According to Sandy Springs police, two people were apprehended in a neighborhood on Falcon Chase and South Trimble Road. As of Thursday afternoon, neither GSP nor Sandy Springs police could confirm whether the two were charged or merely detained. AJC.com is withholding their names until there is clarity on their custody.
The whereabouts of the remaining two suspects are unknown. The incident remains under investigation, the GSP said.
