Chief Jeff Turner of the Clayton County Police Department said the chase began around 9:30 p.m., in Clayton County when officers saw the pickup slow and then stop so the driver could talk to a woman beside the road. That area of Old Dixie Highway at I-75 is known for prostitution but Turner said it was not known if the man was soliciting the woman for sex.
Turner said the driver in the pickup — Christian Harris, 24 ,of Fayetteville — sped off "recklessly" as the officers walked up to the side of the truck. They followed him north on I-75 and then onto Old National Highway.
The pickup was going against oncoming traffic when it collided with the Saturn, sending it airborne and killing the women inside, according to police department spokeswoman Lt. Rebecca Brown.
