ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Leesburg Police continue to search for a man who led them on a dangerous high speed chase at speeds up to 100 miles per hour.

The driver ran away after he crashed this Lexus in a ditch on Highway 32 near Double Oak Lane around ten last night. He hasn't been seen since. Tuesday afternoon, police told us they know the identity of the man they're looking for and that he recently moved from Moultrie to Lee County.

Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore said they're still not sure why the man ran from police when an officer tried to pull him over for running a stop sign, but they did find a bag of marijuana and alcohol in the car.
