The chase ended shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday when a Georgia State Patrol trooper rammed the suspects’ car.
The trooper, whose name was not released, performed a PIT maneuver, which caused the suspects’ car to turn sideways, according to Gordy Wright, GSP spokesman. The maneuver prevented the vehicle involved in the chase from entering I-20 westbound, Wright said.
The chase began as an alleged carjacking in Fayette County and lasted at least 30 minutes before it ended on the ramp to I-2o from MLK Drive. Officers from several agencies assisted in the pursuit before the state patrol took over, Wright said.
After stopping the silver sedan, troopers pulled three suspects from the car and turned them over to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office. The three were taken into custody at the scene.
No one appeared to be injured in the multi-county pursuit.
