Madison officer injured after chase


MADISON — Two juveniles are in custody with two more suspects at-large in connection with a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle into Jackson.

Madison Police Capt. Kevin Newman said that two male juvenile subjects were apprehended and are not being identified at this time. 

“Numerous charges are pending on both subjects including receiving stolen property and felony fleeing,” Newman said. “Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues into the pursuit and original fight.” 

Newman said that on Monday, Oct. 26, at approximately 4:50 p.m., officers from the Madison Police Department were dispatched to a fight in progress involving several subjects at a residence in the Northplace subdivision in Madison. 

As officers arrived on the scene four of the suspects involved fled the scene in a 2008 red Nissan Altima leading officers to engage in a vehicle pursuit with the fleeing vehicle.  

Newman said that the vehicle fled west on Highway 463 and then south onto Highland Colony Parkway, then west onto Lake Castle Road and south onto North Livingston Road into Ridgeland.  

Officers learned during the pursuit that the Altima had been previously reported stolen in a carjacking in Jackson.

The vehicle continued to flee south on Livingston Road into Jackson and once near Post Oak Road the driver lost control and the vehicle left the roadway striking a series of bushes and trees. As a result, the lead police pursuit vehicle also left the roadway striking several bushes and trees on the side of the road.

After crashing, the suspects fled on foot. Other officers arriving on the crash scene pursued the suspects on foot capturing two of them. 

Two subjects remain at large.  As a result of the crash, the officer involved, as well as one of the suspects, were transported to local hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. There were no other injuries or property damage as a result of the pursuit.

Newman said that both vehicles received extensive damage.
