Police Chase in Haralson


Haralson County Ga -- A Haralson County Sheriff’s deputy and three others suffered injuries Tuesday morning following a high-speed chase which ended with a crash at the Haralson-Carroll county line.

Police said 29-year old John Adam Brown of Douglasville tried to avoid a traffic stop Tuesday which resulted in a chase on Georgia 113. The stop was initiated after a Bremen police investigator noticed someone driving erratically and alerted Haralson authorities.

At one point, Brown swerved into the oncoming lane and hit a vehicle head-on, reported authorities. The suspect's vehicle then struck a patrol car and was then struck by another officer's vehicle. This sent the pursued car off the roadway and into a residence on White Rose Lane.

A deputy involved in the crash was taken to Tanner Medical where he was treated and released.

Brown was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. His condition has not yet been released.

His girlfriend, who was a passenger in his car, was taken to Atlanta Medical Center with serious injuries.

The person whose vehicle was struck head-on was taken to Floyd Medical Center in Rome in stable condition.

Haralson County's Chief Deputy Joel McSwain reported that Brown, who is a felon, has active probation violation warrants from Douglas and Carroll counties. His new charges will include aggravated assault with motor vehicle, dui (drugs) and eluding officers.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the incident.
