A man died after a car fled and crashed in Roswell when an officer tried to stop it for laying drag (Roswell, GA)

On early Sunday, a man lost his life when a car fleeing an officer who attempted to stop it for laying drag crashed, police said.

As per the initial information, the incident took place just after midnight in the area of Holcomb Bridge Rd. and Scott Rd. The preliminary reports showed that the department was tipped off by the Alpharetta Police Department about a group of vehicles traveling together and were involved in reckless driving behavior.

Shortly afterwards, an officer found them on Holcomb Bridge Rd. and saw an Infiniti G37 laying drag. That officer attempted to stop the car, which immediately fled from the officer and continued eastbound at a high rate of speed. The officer ended his pursuit at the area of Holcomb Bridge Rd. and Calibre Creek Pkwy.

The fatal car crash occurred about a mile down the road, with officers finding the man and a woman who had been thrown from the car. Both were rushed to the hospital, where the man was pronounced dead. It is unknown if he was the driver of the vehicle or a passenger.

The woman’s injuries were believed to be life-threatening, but her current condition remains unclear. Reports further revealed that two other people were seen coming out of the wrecked vehicle under their own power, before they got into another vehicle which immediately left the scene as well.

An investigation is continuing.
