According to the Fulton County Police Department, officers were called to the Biscayne Apartments on Old National Highway after two women called 911 reporting they had been physically assaulted by a man.

Responding officers said the male suspect took off on Old National Highway and a vehicle pursuit followed.

The pursuit ended about two miles away when the man flipped his car at Creel Road. He was killed in the wreck, according to police.

“He hit the curb, went airborne and went into the woods,” said Kendrick Johnson, who was sitting at a MARTA bus stop when the suspect crashed. “It was a bad situation.”


“He rammed the officer's vehicle. He proceeded down Old National Highway where his vehicle flipped, and he hit a pole resulting in a fatality,” said Detective Partrena Smith, Fulton County Police Department.

Police have not released the suspect's identity.

The victims are sisters who are 24 and 26 years old. They were both transported to Piedmont Fayette Hospital, but are expected to be fine.
