(MILTON, TN) The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office was involved in a high-speed pursuit that started shortly before 4:00 o’clock hour Thursday afternoon (11/10/2022). It ended when the pursued small SUV crashed around 4:15PM on Halls Hill Pike at W. Trimble Road. The driver was taken into custody.
Witnesses said there were school buses unloading students as the pursuit passed, but fortunately there were no reports of injuries.
Affordable Air Solutions Heating & Cooling owner Geoffrey Dotson was almost hit when the SUV crested a hill in front of him and was traveling in the opposite direction.
He told NewsRadio WGNS . . .
A West Trimble Road resident told WGNS that he was on his way home when the high-speed pursuit flew-by on Halls Hill Pike.
He noted, "I turned onto West Trimble Road to go home and saw debris from the SUV in front of a red building on the corner as well as the white house next door."
Reports indicate that it started with an illegal entry to a home. When deputies arrived, the pursuit began at the the home on Old Woodbury Pike. It traveled towards Murfreesboro, and turned right onto Rutherford Boulevard--passing MTSU, and then right onto Halls Hill Pike. Numerous sheriff's units were involved at speeds reported to be around 100 miles per hour.
It is not clear whether the fleeing male accidentally got off Halls Hill Pike by accident as he neared West Trimble Road, or whether on purpose. The small SUV then sped across open an open field, leaving parts of the vehicle along the route. While exiting the field and crossing Trimble, it was slowed even more by clipping a passing motorist.
The pursuit ended when the mangled small-SUV slammed into a chain link fence at a white West Trimble Road home, just a few hundred feet off the intersection with Halls Hill Pike.
