A man fleeing a traffic control causes a collision with a truck in Forsyth | public safety
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Buford man on April 7 after he allegedly fled police across Ga. 400, causing two trucks to collide.
The sheriff’s office issued a traffic stop to a vehicle on Ga. 400 southbound near Shiloh Road around 7 p.m. While speaking to the passenger in the vehicle, deputies noted that he was “extremely nervous” and was breathing heavily. The man said he had no identification with him, but he provided deputies with the name of Bradley Markes.
When the deputies read the name of their patrol car, the man got out of the car and ran across the freeway, causing the vehicles to brake. A van truck was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding with another van truck in front of it.
Deputies arrested the man, later identified as Bradley William Fenner, in a nearby neighborhood shortly after. They also found a backpack containing methamphetamine on the floor of the vehicle where Fenner was seated. Deputies charged Fenner with possession of methamphetamine and illegal crossing of the roadway.
Deputies also arrested the driver of the vehicle, Brandon Chase Rogers of Sugar Hill, who allegedly traveled 100mph in a 65mph zone. Rogers was charged with reckless driving, expired registration and not having a license on him.
