A chase involving a stolen vehicle and a Georgia State Patrol unit Tuesday reportedly ended when both vehicles crashed in north Athens.
One witness reported shortly before 3 p.m. that she saw police cars, fire trucks and ambulances speeding northbound on Danielsville Road, with a GSP helicopter hovering above.
Athens-Clarke County police subsequently issued a public alert that for the next few hours, all lanes of Danielsville Road would be closed to traffic between Nowhere Road and Pine Lane.
"It is my understanding that a stolen vehicle and a GSP trooper were involved in a crash in the area," said Lt. Shaun Barnett, ACCPD's public information officer.
" I do not have any additional information at this time," he said.
