Investigation continues into deadly Albany police chase

July 2, 2007

Albany--The investigation continues into that high speed police chase in Albany that killed two people.

The Albany Dougherty Drug Unit Board is still awaiting a report from state troopers to determine if Officer Gary Price did the right thing when he chased a drug suspect last Wednesday night.

Price chased a car driven by 33-year old Bobby Jones. Jones sped up North Jefferson Street and into Lee County where he crashed head-on into a car driven by 21-year old Billy Klewitz. Klewitz was killed and Jones later died.

There is dash board camera video from Price's car that shows the chase and subsequent crash.

The video's not been made public.

Corporal Price, an eight year veteran of the Albany Police Department, was assigned to the drug unit.

He's now re-assigned to desk duty.
