ATLANTA - The Georgia State Patrol said troopers arrested a suspected impaired driver who fled from a traffic stop and ultimately cause a crash involving two other vehicles.
Jeremy Tremain Ford, 24, of Atlanta, was charged with three counts of serious injury by motor vehicle, DUI, felony fleeing, reckless driving, and speeding.
Troopers said Ford was being pulled over around 3:50 p.m. while driving along Northside Drive for an equipment violation.
