A chase that started near Clayton, Georgia yesterday afternoon reached speeds of more than 100 miles an hour and ended with two crashes in North Carolina. Assistant Chief of ClaytonPpolice, Andy Strait, said around 5:45 p-m an officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop of a driver later identified as 35-year old Jeffrey Bryant Davis of Williamston, South Carolina, who allegedly failing to maintain his lane and not wearing a seatbelt while traveling on Highway 441. At that point, Strait said the driver quickly accelerated and the chase was on, with the drive avoiding multiple sets of stop sticks between Clayton and Franklin including one in Dillard, and running more than one red light. The driver crashed in the city of Franklin at the Recreation Park’s pool, and over the course of the chase, a Macon County Sheriff’s deputy crashed into an embankment to avoid hitting another driver. Davis was taken to the Angel Medical Center, and the deputy was not reported injured. The investigation led to the discovery of that the 2000 Lincoln Continental had been stolen from Anderson County.
