Dash camera footage has surfaced out of Georgia, showing an intense high-speed chase that ended up severely injuring a state trooper.
The chase, which took place last Friday, began in Treutlen County when local deputies stopped a Ford Fusion driven by Cornelius Roberts. Unwilling to cooperate with police, Roberts took off down Interstate 16, sending vehicles from multiple agencies scrambling to join the pursuit.
During the chase, a Georgia State Trooper attempted to stop Roberts with spike strips but broke his leg while attempting to deploy the device. Undeterred from the hunt, the trooper jumped back into his cruiser and continued the intercept.
As Roberts approached a nearby exit, Metter Police Corporal Ray Smith laid out his own spike strips, sending Roberts flying into his cruiser after the Fusion lost control.
Roberts fled from the vehicle but was captured shortly after.
According to WSBTV, a pound of marijuana was confiscated from Roberts’ vehicle, and he was charged with possession of marijuana, fleeing in an attempt to elude and several traffic-related charges.
The GSP trooper was treated at a nearby hospital and later released.
