Suspects in Wednesday Pursuit Charged with Several Felonies in Tuscaloosa, Alabama
A man and woman who were allegedly involved in a car chase that ended in a major wreck in Tuscaloosa Wednesday morning have both been charged with multiple felonies, according to a police spokeswoman.
Stephanie Taylor, a public information officer for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said the chase began just after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday when officers attempted to stop a white Toyota Camry near the intersection of McFarland Boulevard and 15th Street.
The driver fled, weaving in and out of traffic before running a red light and causing a four-car collision at the James I. Harrison Parkway stoplight.
Both occupants tried to flee the scene on foot but were arrested almost immediately.
One person was injured in the pileup and was treated for minor injuries at DCH Regional Medical Center.
Taylor said investigators have determined the Camry had recently been reported stolen from somewhere in Georgia.
The man, 21-year-old Keron Jackson, was reportedly behind the wheel during the chase. He was charged with first-degree receiving stolen property, felony attempting to elude and felony leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
The woman, 18-year-old Shania Monae Robinson, was charged with first-degree receiving stolen property and felony attempting to elude.
Taylor said both suspects are from Tuscaloosa and both may face additional charges from surrounding law enforcement agencies as the investigation continues.
