High Speed Chase Ends at Courthouse
Down town Madison came alive at the end of a busy work day when sirens and a high speed pursuit came rushing through town. Madison County Sheriffs Dispatch received a 911 call stating that a white Toyota had passed another car just north of the river on Valdosta Hwy and clipped the car it was passing. The Toyota continued heading south and did not stop. Deputies headed north on Valdosta Hwy to intercept. When deputies saw the white Toyota and turned around the Toyota accelerated and attempted to elude deputies. The chase came to an end when deputies forced the Toyota into the wall in front of the Madison County Courthouse on SW Range St. The driver was removed from the car and placed under arrest and transported to the Madison County Jail.
No injuries were reported. Madison Police Department assisted with the chase and worked the accident. Georgia Highway Patrol was notified as the original accident occurred in their state.
