Jennifer Place, Hinesville

As police were patrolling on Oglethorpe Highway, they observed a small red vehicle in oncoming traffic with a headlight out. Police turned around to conduct a traffic stop and once behind the vehicle they activated their blue lights. The suspect vehicle failed to stop even after police activated their sirens. According to an incident report, the vehicle approached the entrance of Bacon Field Estates and made a left turn onto Caleb White Boulevard. Police reported the vehicle came to a stop and the driver and front seat passenger fled the vehicle leaving both doors open. While one of the officers gave chase to the driver that fled, the other officer noticed the car, which was left in gear, began to roll backwards. The vehicle, headed towards Jennifer Place, struck a tree in front of a residence. While the impact folded the driver’s door forward it did not stop the vehicle. The officer realized if the vehicle was not stopped it was going to crash into the side of a residence. The officer responding quickly was able to stop the vehicle. Neither of the two suspects were apprehended. Police are looking for the driver who is described as a black male about six feet, one inch tall, 150 pounds, wearing a white T-shirt, blue jean shorts, and a black jacket.
