One arrested, three on the run after pursuit, crash in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- A police pursuit has ended but authorities are still searching for three suspects in northeast Atlanta.

Authorities tell 11Alive that a burgundy Dodge Charger that blew a tire in Old Fourth Ward on Monday afternoon is connected it to several crimes.

Officers first attempted to stop the car in the area of Sydney Marcus Boulevard and Buford Highway after officers suspected it had been taken in a carjacking. But instead of stopping, the driver sped away.

Police are now looking for three suspects who fled the crash scene in the 500 block of Parkway Drive. Officials have since clarified that the driver also ran but is now in custody.

11Alive is working to get more details on the incident. Check back for updates.
