PRATTVILLE — A high speed chase ended in downtown Prattville on Thursday morning.
Officers noticed the vehicle driving erratically on Highway 14 near McQueen Smith Road in east Prattville, said Police Chief Mark Thompson. The chase started about 8:30 a.m. and reached speeds up to 90 mph.
The chase followed the U.S. Highway 82 Bypass to the Washington Ferry Road intersection where spike strips were deployed that flattened one of the vehicle’s tires.
The vehicle drove about another 2 miles before the chase ended at the West Main and Washington streets intersection downtown, where a person riding a bicycle was almost struck, the chief said. The male driver and female passenger were taken into custody. No charges had been filed by 9 a.m. Thursday and the driver’s name was not released.
The vehicle was reported stolen out of Tennessee, Thompson said, and officers recovered a handgun and what appears to be crystal methamphetamine from the vehicle, he said.
