Power restored after crash

December 4, 2006

Valdosta - Power has been restored to an area in Valdosta that lost power after a crash caused by a high speed chase.

Valdosta's Five Points area was left without power for 12 hours after 40 year-old Tad Ray Whitworth rammed the car of a Lowndes County Deputy causing him to loose control and hit three utility poles.

Earlier, police had tried to pull over Whitworth's BMW in Douglas.

He then led them on a chase through Echols and Lowndes County with speeds up to 130 miles per hour.

He was taken into custody after he crashed into a troopers car on Interstate-75.

He faces two felony charges of aggravated assault on a law officer, one felony charge of drug possession, and numerous traffic violations.
