Authorities are searching for a carjacking suspect who led DeKalb County police on a chase onto I-20.
The suspect and an accomplice carjacked at Toyota Corolla on Mayfair Crossing Drive on Tuesday, DeKalb County police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.
A DeKalb County police sergeant later spotted the suspects in the car on Thompson Mill Road and a pursuit began, Campbell said.
“During the pursuit, the two suspects ran from the vehicle near Thompson Mill Road and Miller Road,” she told Channel 2 Action News. “(The driver) was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit.”
Three cars were hit during the chase on I-20 before DeKalb authorities stopped the stolen car under the I-285 bridge, Campbell said.
No one was injured during the chase.
