Florida man arrested after high-speed chase through Turner, Crisp counties

TURNER, Co. (WALB) - A 22-year-old Florida resident is behind bars, accused of leading deputies on a high-speed chase through two Southwest Georgia counties.

The chase happened late Sunday evening after 5 p.m. on I-75 North in Turner County.

Turner County deputies said they clocked the vehicle going more than 90 miles per hour on the interstate, heading towards Crisp County.

Deputies said the driver got off at Exit 92 and continued to run from deputies until he crashed into a sheriff’s car.

No one was hurt but there was minor damage to both vehicles.
