Sunday police chase crosses state lines, but driver still on the run
A driver is on the run following an early Sunday pursuit that crossed state lines.
A Georgia State Patrol trooper saw a blue motorcycle traveling south on I-75 near the Fort Oglethorpe exit around 10:15 Sunday morning.
The trooper could not read the tag on the motorcycle, so he tried to pull the driver over, a GSP spokesperson explained.
The driver fled, got off the interstate at the GA 151/ Alabama Highway exit and ran a red light at the end of the ramp before turning left onto GA 151.
A GSP spokesperson said the driver then ran another red light and turned onto the I-75 northbound entrance ramp.
The driver drove recklessly reaching speeds over 150 miles per hour while changing lanes without using a turn signal.
The pursuit then crossed into Tennessee on I-24 westbound.
The driver got off at the Moore Road exit but immediately got back on I-24 WB.
The spokesperson said the motorcycle kept going on I-24 WB and then stopped abruptly on the right shoulder.
The trooper stopped to try to find the motorcycle, but the driver fled again and went the wrong way down the entrance ramp from Germantown Road (exit 183) and drove onto North Terrace, which is a one-way street.
At this point, the trooper stopped pursuing the suspect because the driver was going the wrong way.
