The suspect was able to escape, however, and the pursuit continued east toward Burton Road, where the trooper performed a PIT maneuver. The driver lost control of his car, and when it came to a rest he ran from the scene, Young said. Atlanta police were able to arrest him after a brief chase.
In addition, a trooper who was assisting with the pursuit lost control of his car and crashed at Moreland Avenue. The GSP is investigating that crash, which had no injuries.
