Terrell Co. Sheriff officials and GSP respond to vehicle chase

TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) -

Post 10 Georgia State Patrol Troopers and Terrell County Sheriff's officials responded to a vehicle chase on GA Highway 520 outside of Dawson around 2:30 p.m.

Terrell Co. Sheriff's officials spotted a suspicious white Mercedes Benz van that had crossed the median twice, just north of Jimmy Rains Road and Federal Aid Road . Officials caught up to the van, performed a traffic stop, and then called GSP for assistance.

Shortly after GSP troopers arrived on the scene, the driver jumped back in the van and took off, initiating the chase. Troopers had to perform the PIT maneuver three times in order to run the van off the road. The driver was apprehended after the van came to a stop in the grass. 

More details will be available later, as officials are still investigating the chase.
