Published 12:42 am Saturday, August 30, 2008

Local law enforcement were involved in a high-speed chase late Thursday night apparently involving a motorcycle.

The exact point where the chase began is unknown, although it is known that the suspect was traveling west on County Road 28 and soon headed north on Highway 31 through Clanton, Thorsby and Jemison traveling at speeds between 100 and 130 mph, according to police radio reports.

It is thought that the suspect entered I-65 via a Calera exit and began traveling southbound.

Units were prepared to intercept the suspect at Exit 200 and in Autauga County, but law enforcement apparently lost sight of the subject somewhere in the Clanton area.

There is currently no positive identification on the suspect, who may have been driving a green Ninja motorcycle.
