WAYNE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

On Friday, around 3:30 p.m.,Wayne County Sheriff Jody Ashley was traveling Dyes Bridge Road when he saw a black mustang with tinted windows traveling at high speeds.

When the sheriff attempted to pull the mustang over, the mustang began to speed away at over 100 miles per hour toward the Alabama state line.

The mustang ran four or five cars off the road. There were no injuries.

The sheriff lost the vehicle as the driver approached the Alabama line.

“I’m not sure about the tag because they were going so fast,” Ashley said. “Very dangerous trying to get this person and they were throwing out drugs too.”

The Mississippi Bureau Investigation is taking over the case. 

If you any information call the Wayne County Sheriff Department at 601-735-2323.
