High speed pursuit ends in crash on I-59 Monday morning

Posted: Updated:

The driver called 911 Monday morning and said that he was on meth and cocaine and that he wasn't going to be taken alive. According to the dispatcher, the caller seemed highly intoxicated and hard to understand. Deputies intercepted the vehicle, on I-59 northbound near mile marker 70. A Deputy got behind the Suspect Vehicle and activated his emergency lights and sirens but the Chevy S-10 refused to stop and a Pursuit ensued.

Attempts were made to deploy stop sticks on a couple of occasions but failed. Additional agencies, Alabama State Troopers, Tuscaloosa Police Department and Coaling Police Department joined in the pursuit and assisted in containing the Chevy S-10. The suspect struck a citizen's vehicle and then spun out of control on the grass. The driver of the S-10 attempted to pull back on I-20/59 but was blocked in by deputies where he was taken into custody.

The driver seemed to be under the influence of Drugs/Alcohol.  A crack rock and marijuana cigarettes were seized. Agents from the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force are also investigating, and the Tuscaloosa Co. Sheriff's Office is charging the driver with traffic charges.

The suspect was transported to DCH and is being evaluated
