Suspect crashes into gas station after Georgia State Patrol chase

- A Georgia State Patrol chase ended in property damage after a suspect crashed into a gas station.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Interstate 20 eastbound at Capitol Avenue. The suspect, identified as 29-year-old Lawrenceville resident Fidel Corfah, did not stop and instead led the officer on a chase.

Surveillance footage from the Texaco gas station on Gresham Road shows a suspected vehicle careening off of the off-ramp, smashing into the gas station's gas sign and one pump.

Corfah was taken into custody. Officials say he had warrants out of Gwinnett County and was driving on a suspended license.

The owner of the gas station told FOX 5 News that this was the third time that a law enforcement pursuit ended with a suspect hitting his business' sign.

The Georgia State Patrol wouldn't comment on the chase at this time. 

It is unknown how the chase started or the status of the suspect.
