Tara Boulevard in Clayton County has reopened more than two and a half hours after a police chase and crash involving suspected drug dealers, authorities said.
According to Sheriff Victor Hill, two people inside a pickup truck attempted to elude a traffic stop Wednesday morning and drove “in a manner that was putting the public at risk.”
The crash occurred just north of Ga. 138 after deputies tried to disable the vehicle, commonly known as a PIT maneuver. That caused the truck to spin out and leave the roadway.
Both suspects are in custody, Hill said, but their names and charges have not been released.
The investigation shut down all northbound lanes of Tara Boulevard for hours while southbound traffic squeezed by in one right lane.
The road reopened shortly before 2:30 p.m, Clayton County police said in a tweet.
