Worth County, GA (WALB) - A Sylvester man is injured when he crashed his car on Highway 82 during a chase from Worth County Sheriff's deputies Thursday.

Investigators say 23-year-old Jawosky Jackson was driving a 2001 Dodge Stratus when it crashed just across Highway 82 from the Worth County airport about 2:00PM, ending his seven-mile chase by Worth County Sheriff's Deputies.

Sylvester Police had issued warrants for Jackson's arrest for two home burglaries on January 21st and 28th. Worth County Sheriff's Deputy J. D. Daniels spotted Jackson and a woman driving west toward Albany and turned on his blue light, but Jackson would not stop.

Running about 60 miles an hour with the Deputy behind him, Jackson drove to the Dougherty County line, then turned around and headed back east toward Sylvester.

"At the most 65 to 55 miles per hour, just not stopping for the Police Department," said Lt. Isaac Adams of the Sylvester Police Department.

With the Deputy behind him, Jackson drove to the Dougherty County line, then turned around and headed back east toward Sylvester.

About a mile from Sylvester Police say Jackson ran off the road, and into the Deputies car trying to stop him.

"They tried to stop him, and he tried to ram the car. At that time he misjudged and lost control of the vehicle, and ended up here on the embankment," Adams said.

About a mile from Sylvester, Police say Jackson ran off the road, and into the Deputies car trying to stop him.

Jackson complained of back pain, and was taken to Phoebe Worth hospital. The woman in the car with Jackson, 21-year-old Sabrina White of Sylvester was held for questioning, but no charges had been filed yet.

A drug dog searching the car did react that he found drugs, and the car was taken to be searched. Jackson is now facing fleeing deputies, a number of traffic violations, as well as the two burglary and probation violation charges.

The Worth County Sheriff's vehicle that Jackson struck suffered no damage.
