"When the deputy arrived at the intersection of Bells Ferry Road and Butterworth Road, he was flagged down and advised there had just been a collision on Bells Ferry north of Butterworth," Baker said in an emailed statement. "The vehicle that had fled from the deputy crossed the center line and struck another vehicle traveling in the other direction."
The Grand Prix collided with a Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck, killing Jones of Canton, according to GSP spokesman Gordy Wright. Two passengers in the Grand Prix were injured, along with the driver and passenger of the pickup truck, Cavender said.
The Grand Prix passengers were identified as Ricardo de San Pedro, 20, and Matthew Barron, 28, both of Canton. Jennifer Myers, 24, was driving the truck, and Michael Myers, 27, was the passenger, according to the GSP. The Myers also live in Canton.
All four of the injured people were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, Marietta, but none of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening, investigators said.
Bells Ferry Road was blocked in both directions for cleanup following the wreck. The accident is being investigated by the GSP.
