Valdosta-A high speed chase sends a south georgia deputy to the hospital and has one man behind bars.
The chase began in Douglas and ended in Valdosta around 11:30 Saturday night when 40-year-old Tad Ray Whitworth resisted a traffic stop in Coffee County.
Whitworth immediately sped away in his 2006 BMW. As he made his way to Valdosta, the Georgia State Patrol pursued him along with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department.
While trying to get away, Whitworth crashed into a Lowndes County deputy sheriff's car.
The deputy had to be transported to South Georgia Medical Center. He is in good condition.
Whitworth also knocked over three light poles along the intersection of North Oak Street causing the traffic lights to stop working for several hours.
He also crashed into a trooper's car on I-75. That trooper is okay. It was that same trooper who was able to stop the driver.
Inside Whitworth's car, officers found what appeared to be methemphetamine.
Whitworth was taken into custody. He faces two felony charges of aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, one felony charge of drug possession, and numerous traffic violations.
