ATLANTA - A chase, a crash and a massive manhunt in the Cabbagetown neighborhood in Atlanta on Thursday night.
It started a little after 7:30 p.m. as Georgia State Patrol Troopers said they tried to pull over a 2006 Hyundai Sonata for making erratic lane changes on Interstate 285 North at Interstate 20 East in Fulton County. The vehicle took off and troopers said they pursued east on I-20 before exiting at Boulevard.
Troopers said the driver passes stopped traffic and ended up striking the front end of a trooper patrol car. The pursuit continued north on Boulevard to Carroll Street where the driver left the roadway and struck a power pole and a parked car.
Troopers said the man took off running.
Authorities brought in K-9 units to search for the driver.
Power was out in the area for a few hours because of the crash.
