Two individuals led authorities on a high-speed chase after being spotted driving significantly over the speed limit on Washington Street.
Traffic 3 officer, Michael Battle, identified the vehicle traveling at over 80 mph in a 30 mph zone. He promptly initiated a chase when the vehicle headed onto the Mississippi River Bridge toward Louisiana.
As the pursuit entered Louisiana, Delta Marshals joined in, while the Vicksburg Police Department terminated their chase at the Delta Exit. Madison Parish Sheriff’s office also joined the effort to apprehend the suspects.
During the pursuit, the passenger exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended. The driver was taken into custody a short time after.
Both are now in the custody of the Vicksburg Police Department.See a typo? Report it here.
