Valdosta, GA- A pair of Florida men face a lengthy list of charges following a high-speed chase that ended in a wreck on Old US-41 North Thursday. A report from the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office states a deputy spotted a Toyota Camry traveling at speeds over 100 miles per hour on I-75 around 4:15pm.
When a deputy pulled the car over, the driver took off on the interstate before exiting at North Valdosta Road. The Camry eventually ended up on Old US-41 North, where it hit a pickup truck head-on.
The driver, 23-year old Steven Toussaint of Pompano Beach, was wanted on a number of arrest warrants in Florida. Deputies also found a number of credit cards and drivers licenses in the vehicle, all made out to various people. The 23-year old now faces charges of fleeing and attempting to elude, financial transaction card theft, driving with a suspended license, driving under the influence, weaving over the roadway, and failure to wear a seatbelt.
One passenger in the car, 26-year old Patrick Noel, is charged with financial transaction card theft. A third man in the car was also wanted by police in Florida- he has not yet been identified or arrested.
The unidentified driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries, and was treated and released at the scene. The three in the Camry suffered non-life threatening injuries and remain at SGMC.
