Two Canton residents suspected in a home invasion crashed their truck Monday afternoon in the woods after a pursuit from Hall County deputies.
A notice was put out on a red Dodge pickup truck that may have been involved in a home invasion in Banks County, Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Anthony Coleman said.
Hall County deputies heard the “be on the lookout” alert and saw the suspected vehicle at the intersection of Ga. 52 and Ga. 365.
“They went to try and identify the vehicle, and at that time, the suspect fled,” Coleman said.
The suspect drove into a wooded area off Holly Springs Road, eventually crashing into a pine tree. The Dodge Ram 1500 hit the tree around 4 p.m. about a quarter of a mile off the main road on private property.
The suspects have been released to the Banks County Sheriff’s Office, Coleman said.
“Once they get down there, they’ll also be facing charges in Hall County,” he said.
Coleman said the suspects, in their attempts to elude police, drove close to a school bus.
The suspects were a white man in his early 30s and a white woman in her late 20s, Coleman said.
“They were checked out at the scene, and both denied transport and treatment,” he said.
