According to the Cleveland Daily Banner, a 45-year-old man and 41-year-old woman were arrested for leading police on a high-speed chase down Interstate 75 in Bradley County, Tennessee, in March 2011. Initially, Bradley County sheriffs spotted a pickup truck that had been reported as stolen driving on Interstate 75.¬† The 45-year-old man was driving the truck, and the sheriffs followed in pursuit. On I-75, the man swerved in and out of traffic to avoid the officers.¬† He then exited I-75 at Paul Huff Road, hitting four private passenger vehicles in the process.¬† As he turned from Paul Huff Road onto Georgetown Road, he struck two more vehicles, causing him to lose control of the truck and enter the yard of a private residence.¬† Law enforcement arrested the suspects. The driver faces many charges, including reckless driving and reckless endangerment.¬† Paramedics assisted at the scene, but it is not known if anyone was seriously injured.
