A man and a woman are in custody after Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) State Troopers said they were in a chase with a Ford F-150 that crashed into a power pole in Huntsville Friday night.
Around 5:30 p.m., a trooper spotted a 2008 Lincoln Town car speeding on Alabama Highway 53. The driver, James Ginn, 23, of New Hope came to a stop, but then fled.
The crashed vehicle was then spotted by Huntsville Police on Blake Bottom near Stringfield Road. At that point, Ginn and a passenger, Heather Walker, 34, of Owens Cross Roads, ran from the vehicle.
State Troopers later saw both passengers in a Ford F-250 driven by Raymond Hundley, 34, of Huntsville. Following a chase, the truck left the road and hit a pole along South Memorial Parkway.
Kohler Damson was working at a car dealership across the road and saw that sparks fly when the truck hit the utility pole.
"I was coming up from the back when I saw an explosion of sparks coming from across the street. It sparked my interest, so I came outside, saw several officers chasing the car that hit the pole. The guy got out of the car and then officers proceeded to chase after him," said Damson.
After the crash, all three ran from the truck, and both Hundley and Walker were taken into custody. Investigators are still searching for Ginn.
Both an SKS rifle and narcotics were found inside Hundley's vehicle.
Hundley is charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Possession of a Controlled Substance. He is being held on a $27,000 bond.
Walker is charged with Attempting to Elude and was a wanted felon out of Madison County, according to State Troopers. She is being held on a $6,000 bond.
State Troopers said formal charges are pending for Ginn.
