HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) — Police in Houston said officers arrested a driver from Louisiana who led federal and local law enforcement on a high-speed chase and ran his car into more than one vehicle.
Chief Billy Voyles said the chase started around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday on the Natchez Trace Parkway south of Highway 389 when a park ranger tried to get a speeding Chevy Malibu to stop.
According to Voyles, the car was going more than 100 miles an hour.
The chase made its way north into Houston where the chief said at one point the car went in circles near the International Paper plant on 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue.
During the chase, the man's girlfriend jumped from the moving car by Pizza Hut on North Jackson Street, and the car also struck a woman's car with her behind the wheel. Neither the girlfriend nor the woman was seriously hurt.
Voyles said the chase ended at a car wash up the street from the restaurant next to Auto Zone when he hit two Houston police vehicles and finally got boxed in by a parkway ranger.
Also during the chase, the car struck a Chickasaw County sheriff's vehicle.
The chief did not release the driver's name, but he did say the man faces federal and local charges.
