Teens lead Police on high speed chase

January 25, 2007

Albany -- Two Albany teens led Police and Deputies from two counties on a high speed chase Wednesday night, before crashing their S.U.V. near Albany's airport.

The teenage boy and girl, which Georgia State Patrol troopers did not have exact ages for today, were clocked at speeds over 90 miles per hour as they ran from Baker County Deputies.

Trooper say the chase started a little before 9 PM on Highway 91 in Baker County, when they refused to pull over for a traffic stop.

The chase ended at Newton Road and Forsyth Street in Albany, when the teen's lost control, struck a sign, and overturned the Chevy Suburban.

Troopers said the S.U.V. Belongs to one of the teen's parents.

The teenage boy was treated at a local hospital, then both teens were turned over to Baker County Juvenile Authorities, charged with traffic violations.
