According to WLBT, multiple vehicles were run off the road during a high-speed chase Sunday afternoon.
A kidnapping suspect was being chased. The pursuit started in Richland and continued into Florence, and then into Byram.
Police say that the suspect was wanted for kidnapping and Felony Fleeing. The kidnapping charge precedes Sunday’s incident.
A witness told WLBT that he saw the suspect run multiple vehicles off the road, including a Rankin County Sheriff’s patrol car. He then saw the suspect strike an embankment and flip multiple times.
Sheriff Bryan Bailey said the deputy driving the patrol car was released after he was checked out at UMMC.
